Wow. Old thread.
The filter cap should come off with bare hands. I don't think you'd be able to get a traditional filter wrench on there anyway. That cap is plastic. A filter wrench could crack it.
Those rubber gripper things made for taking off stubborn jar lids might help if it's stuck on there. Rubber gloves would be a good idea too.
Once off, make sure and install all the new gaskets and don't over tighten the cap. It gets put on finger tight, just enough to make the seal and then just snug.
