    I changed the oil in my son's '06 S this weekend and had to look for a way to pull the oil filter housing. I have several projects I am working on, one of which is a '73 VW Super Beetle. In looking for a tool for the filter housing on the Mini, I found that the Axle Nut tool for the VW Beetles work great!

    Here is a link where I bought mine: Axle Nut Removal Tool, 36mm - Air Cooled VW Mid America Motorworks

    Nice find!

    I have been using a short 36mm socket.
