A 3/8 drive flex head ratchet. About an 8 inch extension, and a socket.

It is actually pretty easy from the top.

It's a 13 mm socket. If you have about 18 inches of extension you won't need anything but a regular rachet.

Doesn't help the filter issue. Remeber its an element not a spin on filter. After the bolt is removed pull cap straight up off.
