I completly agree with the ones stating that this filter was over tourqued upon install.
I had a neighbor ask me for help once. I went to his house and looked at the filter he was trying to get off, nothing left but the base. Crawled under the car and took it right off with a rag to protect my hands from getting cut by the shrapnel, he was amazed and asked what my secret was so I told him to remove he needs to turn counter clockwise, he said "I WAS" to which I replied, " you were but you were doing so from the top side of the car". It took him a second but he finally understood my point, we both laughed.
