Oil change service: the practical MANN-FILTER wrench set

MANN-FILTER is now offering a new edition of its practical oil filter wrench set. The wrenches, which were previously made of aluminum, are now manufactured from plastic, making them easier to transport and lighter to handle.

Ludwigsburg, July 5, 2017 – Most new oil filters can simply be screwed on by hand. It is usually more difficult to remove the spin-on filter after it has been in use for a long time, as unscrewing requires a significantly larger amount of force. The ideal tool for this are special wrenches. The Ludwigsburg-based filtration specialist MANN+HUMMEL is therefore offering a comprehensive wrench set under its premium MANN-FILTER brand for practically all spin-on filters in the passenger and commercial vehicle sector, in accordance with the motto “Perfect parts. Perfect service.”. Particularly when there is only very limited space in the engine compartment, it is faster and easier to unscrew filters using the MANN-FILTER wrenches than with standard tools. In addition to spin-on oil filters, the wrenches can also be used to loosen many fuel filters.

Nine quality tools in a clearly-arranged set

The complete set contains eight plastic wrenches and one steel wrench, which are clearly arranged in a plastic case with a foam insert. The fact that almost all of the parts are manufactured from plastic makes them light to handle and transport – the handy green case weighs a total of only 2.5 kg. The complete set is now available via wholesalers for passenger car parts and via the MANN-FILTER product catalog. “Each tool has its own fixed place in the case. However, each tool can also be re-ordered separately should it ever get lost”, says Jörg Schömmel, Oil Filter Product Manager at MANN-FILTER.

Broad service offering

MANN+HUMMEL is one of the few filter manufacturers on the market to provide matching wrenches for its MANN-FILTER products. “We consider service for the independent aftermarket and workshops to be as important as the products themselves. That is why we provide practical and high-quality wrench sets, even though we are not a traditional tool manufacturer”, emphasizes Schömmel.

The MANN+HUMMEL Customer Service Center will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the wrench set or regarding the product catalog, order status, technical details, delivery times or advertising materials. The complete set can be ordered in the usual way under the item number LSK 01-9.
