I had mine stuck, the tabs ripped off, and the entire thing tore apart as I tried everything to remove it. The threaded part remained.

In the end, I spent hours with an old soldering iron, melting away at the threaded part so that I wouldn't jack the threads up on the metal part of the engine that receives it.

It was a total nightmare. As you can see in the photo.

Now I have a metal housing, I hand tighten, and I have had no issues

You are a real trooper. I salute you.

And just think. If the tabs on a metal one broke you'd never be able to melt off those same chunks.

Read all about it in this article:
Metal Oil Filter Housing Upgrade + Motivx Tools Oil Filter Wrench





Just a tip from experience, I have the Motivx wrench, it is a great tool and every Toyota owner needs it that does oil changes.

However, even with this tool you can still break the plastic tabs off of the housing if it was overtightened the last time it was put on. I personally snapped one of the tabs off my Camry housing with this tool. That is when I swapped to OEM aluminum.

Not blaming the tool for snapping the housing, it was definitely due to previous overtightening, just letting you know that this tool also won't prevent you from breaking tabs in this scenario.

The Motivx oil filter drain tool is also a good idea. Not as messy as that throwaway plastic thing.
