I changed the oil for the first time at the weekend, not as scary as I thought it would be, but I couldnt get the oil strainer out, I tried to use an adjustable spanner without sucess so I am wondering if people know what size spanner I should use and also if there is any technique other than hook it over and give it a good pull
