I didn't have a big-*** socket handy, so I used a set of big-*** pliers. I didn't need much torque, just a bit more leverage to get it loose.

The Mann is under $9 from rockauto.com, seems like a no-brainer to go with that if it's identical to the OEM part for $30+!

You're exactly right - fill through the oil fill cap, not through the filter housing. I posted a few weeks after we actually did the oil change, and I was going off (apparently faulty ) memory; post edited above.
