Remove the Oil Filter
Unless you've got incredibly strong hand grip, you'll probably need a wrench to remove the filter.

While the oil continues to drain, unscrew the oil filter using a filter removal tool, which reaches around what might be a tightly screwed in filter.
Once the filter is off, make sure the filter's O-ring (a band of rubber that fits on the tip to ensure a secure seal) came off with the filter.
