This standard 24 mm combination wrench is specially ground in our shop so that it will hold the fitting on the late 616 and 617 oil filter housing when loosening the oil cooler hose end nut. Without this wrench the fitting may start to turn with the hose nut and you will never get it off.

Car alarms have their place, but on 20 year and older cars Kent is not so sure... When they get that old they can get very tempermental and will usually go off when you least expect it and in places that can cause great embarrassment.
