Default Oil Filter Housing - 2010 Camry LE

I changed the oil & filter on my 2010 Camry LE for the first time today. What a job. The filter housing would not come loose. The local Advance Auto only had 65 mm cap wrenches and they didn't work, just kept slipping, so I returned them and used large vice grips to turn the housing, however, in the process, I chewed up the housing some since everything is cheap plastic these days..not the bottom edges so much but nearer the top. I read that a 64mm wrench should do the job but here's my questions:

If I ever needed to replace the oil filter housing does anyone know where I could order the part from other than a dealership? Are there any other good wrenches that can be used to remove and install? There's not much room for any wrenches other than cap wrenches. Also, can it just be hand tightened? The dealerships & garages tighten the filters/housings so tight you can hardly get them off. Any advice would be appreciated.

The link below provides info on changing the filter.

Toyota recommends using a torque wrench.

Owners are successfully doing their own oil changes using a cap wrench. They state they obtained the tool at an autoparts store. This filter design has been around for a while now thus a well stocked autopart store should have them or be able to order one.

The internet has various posts on changing the filter. Do a search on changing oil for a 2AZ-FE engine model.

Or check in at website such as Toyotanation or Tundrasolutions.
