    FYI: For the Wix 51348 the Lislie 61560 is the correct tool.

    74mm, 15 flutes.

    The Lislie 61560 is the exact same thing as the one sold by Snap-On under their Blue Point banner except for the trademark. The finish is identical.

    Amazon has them for under $7.

    Well made, works perfectly.

    Amazon takes a month if it is not on the Snappy Truck it used to be a few days .

    Then his wife would bring it to me with Coffee and Donuts .

    I have the one that NAPA sells. Got it 20 years ago when I had my first gen, been using it ever since. Looks basically the same as the Lislie but it’s silver in color.

    This post was made primarily so it could be found with the search feature or a search engine.

    Information on which cap wrench fits which filters is surprisingly scarce.

    The 2TR-FE is best serviced using a cap wrench.

    There are other tools available to remove the filter from the end, but all damage the filter. A cap wrench does not and can thus be used to tighten the filter easily to a predetermined position without guessing. This is perfectly safe and will not damage the filter. If you over tighten it's your own fault and if you do the cap wrench is a great aid at removal time.

    Additional information:

    The Toyota Denso 90915-YZZD1 filter uses a 74mm 14 flute cap wrench.

    The Toyota Purolator 90915-YZZG2 uses a 76mm 14 flute cap wrench.

    You are, of course, welcome to use whatever tools and techniques best fit your personal style including cold chisels and chop saws.

    An actual mechanic values a correct and elegant tool for each specific job.

    Thanks for the info. The strap wrenches work well, also the adjustable metal band wrenches. I've never met an oil filter I couldn't remove without an existing tool I had, except for my accord in which the filter was basically recessed into the pan, that required the flute cap wrench which I had to cough up the cheese for.

    I am definitely not an actual mechanic and cannot afford to buy a specific tool for each job. I don't think most mechanics have an elegant tool for each job either, but that's just guessing based on some of my experiences.
