I am about to do my first oil change on my 2013 Panamera 4 and as well as an oil plug washer I had to find a 36mm socket or tool to remove the oil filter cap. There are a few options on the web of course but I was hoping to find something locally. Well Napa sells a really nice lightweight red anodized tool for Ford trucks. It's designed for oil and fuel filters and happens to be a 36mm hex and it fits perfectly!

It cost $29. Can't beat that.

I did say that there are options on the Web and as we all know, generally the web is cheaper!

Oil change is done!
What I did find is that the NAPA tool is just the right depth that you don't need to remove the brace below the oil filter housing. There is a cut out that allows a regular and torque wrench to easily access the cap.
Also, oil plug torque for the 970 is 22 ft/lbs and oil filter cap to 19ft/lbs.
Good luck.

Never a good idea to talk down to the site owner, particularly when he was trying to be helpful...…………………..:blink:
