Thank you myturbodiesel.com for getting me through my first oil change, filter comes out from above, who would have guessed? To make it worse, from below it looks like it does come out the bottom! What is going on with that filter removal nut looking thing underneath the filter houseing? I just about reefed on it to remove the filter! Myturbo saved my bacon. Thanks again, great way to discover this place, I was in trouble looking for answers.
