Default what is the best way to Change Oil Filter on 04-Civic

Seems like a silly question I have been changing oil and filters for many years on many different cars. when I tried to change the oil and filter on the wife's Civic it was a bit of a challange. 1st I had a hell of a time finding the oil filter, I did find it on the firewall side of the block and it was very high. when I tried to remove the oil filter oil ran down my arm and soaked my sleeve with oil. There must be a better way. Any suggestions.

Since i don't have a 04 civic to look at, but did you try removing the oil filter from the top? I know when i did some other cars i could easliy remove the filter from the top.

Thanks for the feedback there is no way or room to access the dam thing from the top. I hate paying $50 for an oil change and waiting around. thanks
