a 1 1/4 socket and a long extension on a 3/8 ratchet, counter-clockwise, and pull the filter out of the top the new one pushes right in .

actually if its a 2.2l engine the easiest thing to do is get about a 6"-10" long 3/8 exstension, the rachet, and a 32 mm socket which you can buy at Walmart, fleetfarm, automotive stores
