‘99 E300TD…Oil Filter Removal

Can someone please tell me the size of the hexagon hold down bolt (looks like black plastic) on top of the oil filter since I want to get the proper size socket?

It is 36mm. There is a special fitting you can buy for a few dollars which fits over it or you can use a big adjustable wrench too.

A SAE socket (1 7/16, I think) works well too, if you wrap a layer of paper tape around the flats on the cap. But most people are as likely to have such a large SAE socket as the appropriate metric size.
