Hi, just going to change the oil on my C36 1997

The oil filter appears to be at the back right hand side of the engine, quite high up.

On my other cars I just spin off the filter with a chain style filter remover. I was a little concerned that the top may get crushed a bit by the chain.

Any thoughts suggestions?

its the 3.6 straight six (AMG version of the C280)
