No idea how much space there is as the filter is different on the 2.2, but in the past I've always just hammered a long screwdriver through the filter and twisted it off using that as a handle.

but then how did you screw on the new one up to the correct tightness, by hand?

Yep, I've always done it that way - oil the seal and then screw it on hand tight.
Same on my motorbikes.

Fair enough I suppose if there's enough space to do it tightly :)

Right tried everything but hammering the screwdriver through. Really don't want to do that as I don't want to cover myself and the drive in oil plus there doesnt even seem enough room for that. Putting the cover back and gonna order the tool. Very pi55ed off and cold! Whoever put the oil filter there needs shooting!

I don't know if the oil filter is the same on the CTR as the 1.8 - anybody?
If it is, then yes you need the one in the first link, from Tegiwa.

Always pleased to help a fellow Wiganer! Lived there until 17 years ago, but in exile in East Midlands now. Used to live near Boars Head pub. I'll be visiting this next weekend to see my elderly mother, so looking forward to a meat and potato pie!:D

Strange being a Wiganer but i always rated Pimbletts steak pies from St Helens better than any made in Wigan! Pooles pies used to be nice back in the day but have gone right down hill! Steak pie on a barm you just cant beat it!

I think either get the Tegiwa one or one from the links below I posted for the petrol 65mm tool. Doble Honda seem to be doing them for £2.99 for 2, bargain.

I removed the drive shaft cover, then it was easy to undo using a pipe wrench/Stllsons.

What do you mean by drive shaft cover? I couldnt see any way into it with any sort of improvised tool other than remove the whole drive shaft. Ive ordered the genuine tool now so will wait until weekend.
