Using Wheel Bearing Grease as a Third Hand


  • The oil filter housing bracket mounts to the shroud with bolts that attach to large washers and nuts on the back side. This is very awkwardly placed and I was lucky not to have dropped the washers or nuts behind the engine again.
  • The trick I used was to use sticky wheel bearing grease to capture the nut in the end of a wrench so I could fumble around with it and have some hope of not dropping it behind the engine again. The grease worked.
