I said the same thing, that filter was a mother to get off when I did my first oil change.

The PF46 filter is tightened down with an automated piece of equipment....

It's torqued to 30Nm +/- 5Nm......Once the engine goes through a thermal cycle, the rubber sealing gasket gets a good seat.

Do you guys remove that plastic shield when doing the change or leave it on?

I found that leaving the plastic shield on and the small drip tray just makes changing the oil and removing the filter too much trouble. I remove it and have clear access to the drain plug and filter. Also can wipe the cross member clean of oil easier.

I do the same thing..that drip tray is more troublethan it's worth, not so much the tray as that skidplate..made of plastic ... although if it were metal it would be gone, weighing to much ..
