FILTER BUDDY QUESTIONS?

HOW do I clean/care for my Filter buddy? For single uses, every filter change the best way to care for your Filter Buddy is to turn it inside out, wash with dawn dish soap, warm water, and set out to dry with your other fiter change tools. OR, wipe with a shop rag and set upright for next time. For repeated back to back use, spray with brake cleaner or degreaser and wipe with rag. NOTE: repeated saturation with brake cleaner or other costic solvents will cause increased wear on your filter buddy. While it is acceptable to use, the prefered method for longevity is soap and water, or let set upright till the next time.

Filter buddy is designed to be the most compact, and versatile tool for fluid filters removal of 2.5"- 3.5" Width, to 2.5"-3.5" depth, and an interior cavity space big enough for those big jobs of fluid.

HOW to use Filter Buddy on cartridge filters. First, make sure the Filter Buddy you are using fits the size, and location of your filter. This will vary greatly between machines, and filters. SO BE CAREFUL! Do your pre service research of your machine to make sure you have the right Buddy for the job. Use should be straight foward. Crack your filter loose with tool, or hand of choice. Make sure that FIlter Buddy is pushed on as far as possible, contacting the machine if necessary. With even pressure, unscrew the filter smoothly, and slowly with both hands. Take care to catch all the fluid that comes out, and straight down from your drip point. Replace your old filter with a new one, and ENJOY. Furthur instructions, tips, tricks, and techniques can be found on the youtube link on the side of the page --->>>
