"The Saturn L300 uses an oil filter element rather than a typical canlike filter that most other cars use. You'll need to look for the filter-housing cap to find the filter element, which is held within a cartridge. The filter-housing cap would appear rounded with a six-sided top. You'll find it on the side of your L300's engine block."

do you know what size wrench is needed to remove it?

32mm socket, but you need a special low profile one specifically made for removing the cap. Here is a link... http://www.amazon.com/Lisle-14700-Canister-Socket-Ecotec/dp/B0009OMYAQ

The container is located on the front of the engine on an L300 with a 3.0 liter engine. One acceses it from below, near the radiator. The cap nut is NOT 32mm. It's more like 15/16. However, there's a 3/8 hole in it so one can just insert a 3/8 in socket wrench in it to remove the cap and access the filter. You don't need any special tool. That's how I did it:-)
