I loosen the filter off till I can twist it off by hand then I use a freezer bag and wrap it over the filter and housing till the filter comes off. It usually will catch all the oil that comes out. It is a pain but it works.

I use the Filter Glove from Genos Garage!
Not a drop on the PS unit...

Perfect for the smaller filter!

Sure there are many different ways to do it though. But yeah its in a shitty place.
That sounds like something I'm going to try on my next oil change, thanks for the tip

I stick a cooking pan that's shaped sort of like you'd cook a meat loaf in under the filter ... fits just right in there. Then, I loosen the filter & let it all drop in the pan - pulling the pan, oil, & filter out all at once after its done.

Been pretty successful for me so far.

That's a really good idea but it says it's currently unavailable

Someone in the oil change thread suggested a 1 quart (i think that was the size), painters bucket. Looked like it fit right up in there and he said no mess. I purchased a few sizes and will try next OC. Best idea I had seen so far. The grocery bag trick didnt go well for me.

Booms: I do apologize it looks like Genos is either sold out or stopped stocking this item.
