Hello All!

I have a Corsa C 2005 1.2 Twinport and 32mm is too big for the oil filter cap. Does anyone know the socket size? It seems to be smaller than 32mm?

Cheers!

Fairly certain I used a pair of channel-locks on mine, do you not have a proper filter wrench?

I'd go measure but I'm not supposed to leave the house ?

I thought the 1.2 and 1.0 had the same filter housing. I used a 32mm spanner on mine which fitted perfect but also seem to recall some being 27mm

Z10XE is a 27mm possibly?

It's a different filter for sure, I'm assuming it was changed with all facelift engines

I think it may be 27mm. I'll get a 27mm and see if it fits. Thanks! The 32mm is much to big.

That's basically confirmed it then:
  • Preface (up to MY04, engine code Z**XE) is 27mm
  • Facelift (MY04 onwards, engine code Z**XEP) is 32mm

I used the leather belt trick to get mine off and on, but mine's 32mm so my adjustable spanner wasn't big enough
