My first oil change on my new 98 was unforgettable. Iíve never been so frustrated. Hope the OP figured it out.

They make sockets for front 4 wheel drive axle nuts that have 4 prongs on them that fit nicely in the holes of the base plate. I have 2 different ones that so far have fit perfectly in just about every oil filter Iíve had stuck. Terrible feeling when the case of the oil filter starts deforming!!!

ABN 4WD Spindle Nut Socket, 1/2in Drive Ė Spindle Socket Hub Socket, Hub Nut Socket Ė 4 Outer, 1/2 Ton to 3/4 Ton

That's a handy one. For some reason I've never had to get that deep so long as no one uses a plier type tool. Even the extremely tight ones the socket type slip over wrench - Try to tighten it if it won't easily loosen and it usually goes.

I just had the same thing happen on Saturday and after a few punctures with a screwdriver (and a few cuts on my thumb after), it still wouldn't budge. Checked the internet and saw a suggestion to put sandpaper on the inside of the oil filter wrench to add more friction and it worked like a charm!
