I'd have to look for it myself. I found this picture. I'm used to oil filters going down, not up. You can use a filter wrench on it or 32mm/1 1/4 inch socket. 18 ft lbs is max on tight.

Just to add, I believe the arrow is pointing to the drive-belt end of the engine, not the front of vehicle. Oh well, If I'm wrong it wouldn't be the first time.

Yes, I understand. The filter probably fits the cap in the picture. Here is what the cap looks like.
