Changing An Oil Filter In The New 6.7

I Haven't Changed My First Filter In My New 6.7. Took A Look,man It Seems To Be A Lot More Difficult Than The Old 5.9.which I Thuoght Was Easy.this Thing Looks Like You'd Have To Take A Few Other Parts Off Just To Get It In There .is It Nessessary To Remove Anything To Get That Oil Filter Screwed In?
Looks Tight For Space!

I just take off my fender plastic in the wheel well. Like 6 screws and it pops down and then I just reach in and change.

it's a piece of cake with the correct tools
get an oil filter claw style tool to put on your 3/8's extension
nothing needs to be removed to get to it that way

I just did my first oil change on my 6.7 yesterday. You can access the oil filter from under the truck without removing anything. The whole job took less than 20 minutes.

You do the 6.7 just like the 5.9 >> There is no difference on the Oil Filter.... Now the Fuel Filter is a completely different story!!
I changed a fuel filter on a 4x4 the other day and **** that was difficult!! I am not sure what I am going to do when I get to a 2wd truck >>> Probably a lot of cussing but I am not sure how much that will help get the job done.

The oil filter is a piece of cake, just get under the truck, I slid in on the creeper from the front of the truck, and used a regular oil filter wrench. There is no mess at all unless you accidentaly tilt the filter sideways and spill some oil. And after I did the 2 inch leveling kit, there seems to be more room in there to get to the filter, but even while it was stock it is very possible, just a little tight..

you can do it from the top, it's pretty easy to get to if you pull the airbox out. the bottim seems to be the easiest tohugh. like what matttn23 said, i think when i leveled mine it made fairly easier.

I just changed my oil this weekend and I agree that it is just as easy as doing it on the 5.9 except that it is a bit more difficult trying to slide a ziplock bag up over the filter so you don't make a mess. As was already said though, if you don't tilt the filter then you won't spill any.

You guys have me scared about doing my fuel filter now.......

fuel filter is easy. Paying for it is tougher than installing it. I just take the fender plastic out the opposite side for that one lol. just take the water drain pipe off and then the electrical plug off. They you just get a wrench on it and take it off. Not hard at all.
