So I recently bought a 05 outback Xt and am currently doing an oil change on her. Drained the oil no issue, but the **** filter won't come off at all. I tried pretty much every trick in the book (that I know). It is currently -15 Celsius here in Canada, but I think that there's other reasons why this **** thing won't come off. Has anyone got any ideas/suggestions regarding this? Also, does anyone drive their outback without that plastic skid plate?
