Default `02 Civic Oil Filter

Anybody figure out a way to change the filter on an `02 Civic EX without
letting it run down your arm? I found ramps made it significantly easier to
get at it, but I still have to work my arms up and around five different
things to reach the filter, and just can't seem to pull it back down without
getting some amount on my shirt/face/shoulder, etc.

TIA,

Daryl

Leave the car for an hour or two before pulling the filter. It helps if you
can tilt the car so the open end of the filter is pointing downwards.

Unless you're set on using your ramps, I've started removing the front
passenger tire after I drain the pan. With the tire off, you can easily
reinstall the drain plug and have good access to the filter. It will still
let some oil out but not up your sleeve and you have access to the drip path
so you can clean it up easily. I used to let it drain overnight which used
to be a drop-free trick but I'm finding that doesn't work for my Si like it
did my 98 EX, it might just be a superior ADBV on my filters of choice
though.
