I have an oil leak in my 1997 Jeep Cherokee sport. It seems to be coming from the bracket that connects the oil filter to the engine. The problem is I cannot get the bracket off, nor do I know how to remove it to replace the gaskets. There is a huge torx socket female end on one side, but I can't loosen it with anything. Is that the right way to remove the bracket or am I missing something?

Oil Filter adapter O Rings!

Hardest part is getting right parts depending on your year! My 1992 was a bear! Dealer shows WRONG parts for mine!

The bolt is in an almost impossible spot and is a muther to break loose!
