On my 700 it is under the seat, pull the bucket storage, and you can see it or touch it, not both. Can't get a wrench with a handle on it, no room to spin the handle. Need to get an end deal, with a socket and maybe extender on the socket.....

That is the only thing I've found to complain about on the Ranger. I can't believe how hard that filter is to get at. I managed somehow to get it off and back on without the tool that is like a big socket that spins it from the end, but I WILL have it next time. Trust me, don't try it, just buy the tool. Someone said you could order it from Amazon or Napa.

I bought one of the correct filter wrenches, it actually is a 64mm 14 flute end cap. It is the same one as some toyota vehicles. beware there are combo ones that are 65 mm that will not work. With the cap wrench filter changes are a breeze, other than the mess in the skid plate.

One really strange deal is the factory supplied filter is different than the OEM replacement. This cup wrench will not fit on the factory filter, I've ran into it a couple of times on the XP series atvs, those filters are impossible to get off with out a cup wrench.
