I've had two different Lincoln Mark VIIIs - one 1993, and currently one 1996 LSC. Both are "first generation" ('93-'96) Mark VIIIs, but I'm fairly certain this will also apply to "second generation" ('97-'98) models.
The problem is that the oil filter is in one of the most inconvenient places ever conceivable. Usually, with relatively little trouble, I can get my arm in well enough to unscrew and pull the filter off. But, when it comes to actually getting the filter out from the confined space that is its home, there always seems to be some form of creative contortionism required and I can never seem to remember how it is I got the thing out the last time.
Is there any "easy way" to go about doing this? Is there some trick or special technique I might be missing out on?
