Besides taking it to someone else. I really hate having to take off the skid plate to get at the filter. Anyone able to change their oil filter without having to remove it. I just couldnt see a way.

You must have the off road package. You have a different plate then the rest of us without the package.NateL said:Is my skidplate the only one that has 4 allen heads holding on a small access plate to get to the oil filter? The access panel is about 4"x4".
If your removing 6 bolts, your removing 2 too many! 2 bolts come all the way out, 2 bolts get loosened and the plate slides out. Unless you have a plate that I have not seen yet!m4ck said:I have to remove 6 bolts to get this thing off. And if you remember it aint so easy for me to get under the truck let alone move around under there. I aint exactly the skinny kid you know.
m4ck said:There were 2 in the front 2 in the rear and 2 in the middle that hold the plastic front bumper to the skid plate which I thought was odd.
My G35 had this. It had the skid plate, but had a 3x5 hole cut where the drain plug was and oil filter.JetTech said:Just cut a hole in your skid plate where the filter is. Sounds like an odd idea but it's better then leaving the entire skid plate off.
