    Well no good, off to Hunter and Cuthills whne the Wuhan virus issue is over in Australia
    Put the spanner up from below. You might have to experiment with different angpes on the spanner head until you get it slotted on.

    I tried, I tried, I tried. Each time I got close, the spanner head would move. 30 mins was enough for me. I couldn't even push the spanner head on with my other hand, like I would do normally, as I could not get the hand up there.

    I find it better from the top with spanner going in from the right, then pulling filter out from bottom, never takes longer than a few minutes.

    Same here. I recall that I changed the fuel filter at the same time but can't recall if I did the oil filter while the fuel filter was off which may have made access easier. However, I usually do one thing at a time so unlikely.

    If your spanner is slipping off, you could try pushing it on with a piece of timber or similar.

    I find duct tape or electrical tape around the pivot helps, it restricts it pivoting too much
    I find it easier to undo from underneath

    The head of my spanner has a screw to adjust the tension on the angled head. So you can set it at one angle and tight en it up to limit movement.

    Maybe manuals and autos are different (mine is TD4 manual) but I've never been able to get to the oil filter from above. Although I've not tried with the fuel filter removed.

    This shows how I do it. (No connection to the vid's owner though.)

    Filter removal starts about 2:02
