mazda 626 oil filter

Prob. an ez question: where is oil filter on:
2002 Mazda 626
4-cyl
Auto/Air ??
Also, owner's manual says "need special tool to tighten filter, so have dealer do oil change."
Yikes.
Is special tool just maybe a filter wrench???

Never heard of such a thing. You might want to inquire with the service dept of the Mazda dealer. Have them show you the tool and get the part # of the tool. You should be able to buy it from Mazda.

It might be a really funky wrench to get in a tight spot. If so, get the tool, although that's a silly system in my belief .

Lol. Mazda in general is ______ (fill in the explicative). Lol.

However, we'll keep it family-oriented for the benefit of all involved.

Never liked Mazda. Their hook-in with Ford seals their doom with me .

The special tool I've always used in changing an oil filter is a Channellock 460, works with any car.
