There has been some discussion in the past about installing and removing the oil filter.
From the factory, the very first filter is over-tightened, making a filter cap or a different tool necessary to get it off. See below for understanding.
Once the first filter is replaced, it should be possible to simply grab it from above and turn it off by hand.
The "trick" about installing to the correct tightness it is to turn it very gently by hand till the gasket just starts to touch the block, then tighten it further by exactly by three-fourths of a turn. Finished. No tools needed for installation or removal.
For understanding the picture below was taken from a different manual where the filter is installed from below. The text applies to our cars also.
