ABN Oil Filter Socket(7-pc) Review



The ABN Oil Filter Cap Wrench Tool Set includes seven metric sockets ranging from 24mm to 38mm. They're all six-point 3/8" drive, chrome-vanadium steel sockets with a natural finish. They're advertised to fit: Mercedes, Cadillac, Buick, Saturn, SAAB, Dodge, Ford, Mini Cooper, Mach Trucks and some BMW.



We've been using this set for a number of years now and the low profile design makes it ideal for not only oil filter replacement, but also if you're in need of a large-sized, very shallow depth socket. As I'm sure many of you are aware, many canister-type filters are quite recessed. And even as shallow as these sockets are, it occasionally becomes necessary to utilize 3/8" wobble-extension or a universal socket to reach the hex of the canister. In a majority of cases though, It's not required. The set cost roughly $30-40—depending where you purchase—and are very lightweight and durable; haven't had a socket break yet. So, let's get right into applications. The obvious question is, which makes and models of oil filter canisters can this socket set can be used for?



We've personally used each of the included sockets with the following vehicles' oil filter canisters


24mm fits '12 Dodge Journey Crew, '12 Grand Cherokee, '11 Chevy Aveo, '13 Chevy Cruze, '15 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6, '19 Jeep Cherokee 3.2, 20 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6L. '22 Hyundai Sonata. '16 GMC Canyon 3.6L.

27mm fits Mini Coopers, '09 Kia Borrega 3.8L, '11 Hyundai Genesis 3.8L, '17 BMW 330i. '16 Lincoln MKX 2.7L Turbo.

26mm fits '17 Porsche Macan(2017),

32mm fits '04 Saab 9-3 2.0T, '06 Saturn Ion 2.2L, '15/18 VW Beetle, '15 VW GTI. '14 Chevy Equinox 2.4L. '19 BMW X5.

36mm fits '08 Volvo S80 3.2L & '07 Audi A6.


It's a good set and priced well. If you're in the market for oil filter sockets, you can't go wrong.
