Just ordered Steelman 6138. 15 flute by 88mm. About $10 on EBay. They are listed for a Hyundai.

Just got my 90mm version Steelman 6128. Fits with some slop so I could see it doing damage to the plastic oil filter housing.
I did like the tin foil solution! Good thinking.

If the 88mm doesn’t fit the the following wrench will:
Uxcell a12092100ux0023. Available on Amazon for ~$9.

Hope this recommendation is more solid than the one in your post in reply 5 above to this thread.

It's not a recommendation at all. Just offering a part number if 89mm happens to be the right size. It's hard to know how the tool manufacturers measure a nut with an uneven number of sides (15).

The Motil that a few of us have is listed as 90mm, but it fit fine the one time I used it. Just tried to do a sanity check on the XE to see how well it really fit, but found the 2.0 has a much smaller filter.

I always called my wrench a 90mm until I read this thread. So I just measured my Assenmacher cap wrench (See Post #2 above). Didn't have a caliper handy; used a decent pair of magnifying glasses. Came out to 88.5mm ID and 95mm OD. Wall thickness to just over 3mm.

Haven't noticed slop when using. Fits snug on my 5.0L. Don't see rounding corners of the plastic housing happening if staying within decent torque spec and not reefing the cap. (25Nm if I remember correctly--don't quote me.)

Consider yourself quoted. 25Nm is correct, or 18.4 ft-lbs.

I like that the torque setting is stamped on the filter housing. Would be nice if all the fasteners had that feature. Beats the heck out of navigating through thousands of pages of shop manual.

Now that you mention it, yeah. Stamped on the filter housing. Would be nice if more parts, if not fasteners, had that feature.

My original filter housing/canister and base had purple alignment marks on them which looked like factory marking with a permanent ink pen. The same colour purple as a number of other markings on the engine.
The first time I changed the filter it became "tight enough" about 2 mm past alignment, the second time about 3 mm past.
Last time (two months ago) I replaced the canister as I had bought the full factory kit (canister & base & filter) as this kit was going real cheap on Fleabay AU, less than the normal price of the filter by itself. I didn't have a cap type removal tool at the time (I still don't, still waiting for delivery of Lance's 88 mm special!), I simply used my strap type removal tool to keep turning it until it rather abruptly felt nice and firm.
Funny thing is on my old XFR the canister was scratched to buggery and was a real bear to get off the first time, obviously some pimply apprentice in the dealership had gone ape on it with a plumber's wrench!

I was finally able to figure out how to measure these 15 flat applications. The Steelman 6128 measures exactly 90mm from middle of the flat to the opposing peak. Seems I owe you an 89mm wrench as that's what the filter housing measures. I ordered one and will have it in two weeks. Will let you know if it works. The 90mm is just too loose. It will bugger up housing after awhile.
