Don't bother!

I just did it with very little research prior and the oil filter is very difficult to get to. Just take it to the dealer!

I haven't seen any posts on the topic (with minimal search) so I thought I'd share. The threads are never ending and the o-ring makes it difficult to rotate all the way out.

I find it quite easy to do my own oil change and I save 50% of what the dealer charges. As long as the O-Rings are lubricated, then they should slide on/off and screw into the oil filter reservoir with no issue.

Their are a few threads out there, with pictures, that showcase how to change the oil and filter.

Yeah...I have no idea what that dude is talking about...its pretty mindless, and I agree there are several posts about oil changes on here. I've changed it myself twice now for less than half what the dealer charges. They finally offer an aftermarket (non-mopar) filter on Amazon for $30 rather than $45 for the Mopar version, or $60 if you go to the dealer. A few more years hopefully the price keeps dropping to a more reasonable level. I figure it takes about $1.50 of material in the Korean factory where they are made. $30 for these filters its a joke, should be more like $5.99. I actually think the Pro-Guard filter I got was nicer than Mopars.
