How do I get the oil filter out? Sounds stupid, see details.

Asked by Oct 07, 2016 at 11:36 AM about the 2012 Jeep Liberty Limited Jet 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2012 Jet 4WD. Dealer serviced til now. Leaking oil from the filter area (has been for a while), so I decided to figure it out myself. But I've removed the skid plate and battery box and can't figure out how to get the filter out. There's a plastic piece that seems to be there ON PURPOSE for the oil to leak through the access hole in the skid plate, but I can't wiggle the little plastic piece out to access the filter.  What's the secret?
