Oil Filter Bolt Size?

I have a 2006 Cobalt 2.2L LS. Recently I want to change oil and the filter,

but I can't open the filter cover. Anybody know what's the size of the socket

wrench I need to open that damn cover?

Thanks!

I am confused. Because other guys say it's 33mm or 7/16 inch. So is it

imperial or metric?

If you don't want to crack your oil filter cover please use proper tool. 32mm shallow socket. My dad used to say "Right tool for the right job". Channel locks are for plumbers.
