    First make sure you are turning it the right way. Its pretty common when you get caddywhompus to a bolt to try and turn it the wrong way. When I took mine off I just used a big pair of channel locks with a lot of ass behind it.

    If I'm not mistaken you should be turning clockwise when viewing the filter from the top, since when viewed from the bottom the nut should go counter clockwise. Somebody back me up on this.

    that's right.

    If you still cant get it off, just cut the nut off with a dremel tool, and replace the nut/bolt.
