While I fully understand what you mean by chiseling it off and agree it is the best method, I am sure most people would not understand until shown how to do it.

And Big Red Go Kart the filter wrench will not work, way too flimsy

Best bet is stillsons or foot prints but not easy to use in that position

Actually it does, and did work on the VZ oil filter housing cap that was replaced in Albany/WA in 2011. Exactly the way I described was the way the techie removed it. No fuss, no strain, no fanfare. Removed, thrown out, new one replaced.

It depends on the oil filter wrench, a cheapy yea it will fail but a decent one yea it will work. I used to have a ABW one untill it walk about. I saw a new blue point one the other day and they look even stronger a new design I think.
