    Park with one side on gutter, bricks, or something to have filters slightly downhill. Drain engine and then drive a large "stumpy" screwdriver into the filters. Drain and then remove.

    This is exactly what i do.
    Dump the oil . And then jack the passengers side right up as much as possible so oil in the filter stays in the filters due to created anti-spill angle. Then stuff a few rags under the filters.
    Take fuel filter assembly off and tuck to the side . Take oil filters off. Minimum mess.

    If changing fuel filter . Hoses off. Unbolt the unit. Drain excess diesel out of it.
    Then bolt it back on upside down and unscrew.
    Bobs your aunty !

    I just found this, I haven't owned a TD42 for a long time.
    OMG this has been made difficult, a 2 litre ice cream container wedges in under the filters perfectly & catches almost all of the oil.

    I just buy a spray can of engine degreaser everytime I buy the filters. Let the oil run its path then use the entire can of degreaser on the affected area. Lol.

    The method I seem to have adopted is

    1. Use a chain type filter wrench
    2. Unbolt fuel filter & tie off to one side
    3. move vacuum hoses out of the way
    4. Loosen each filter, one at a time, when loose enough to undo by hand place a plastic bag over the filter (supermarket shopping bag) & as soon as the filter is free tip it upright.
    5.Still doesn't catch every drop, but it does result in less spillage.

    Whoever thought horizontally mounted filters in a spot requiring 'rubber' arms to remove them was a good idea obviously didn't have to change them.

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    I pull the sump plug and let it drain overnight, then remove the filters the next morning.
    Most of the oil in the filters runs back into the sump (anti-drain back valves don't work very well).
    I slip a shopping bag over the filters before spinning them off.
    It doesn't stop all of the mess, but it does greatly reduce it. A couple of rags up under the filters catches any dregs
