oil filter location

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty. i love it even with the not as good as I hoped gas milage. But I have a problem. I went to change the oil at 300o miles and I can't find the oil filter. I took off the skid plate! I used a flashlight! I have had my hands everywhere trying to "feel" it if i can't see it. I know it must be there....but I can't find it. Monday i take it to the dealer for an oil change. Anyone else do there own oil have a problem like this. I see lots of people are using a K&H ?? filter maybe I better just let it go and take it in every time.

The oil filter is located on the front side of the engine closer to the driver side. If you open your hood and stand in front and look in the engine compartment, look at the front of the engine that is facing you. Now look for the large belt and pullies on the engine. The filter is located near the bottom right of the pully and belt assembly (as you are facing the engine)
I use a Mobil 1 (M1-209) filter. Or the K&N, not sure of the part#. If this is your first time, you will have a hard time getting the factory filter off.

I got this off another jeep forum:

"here is how I have found best to get the filter loose. If there is a mechanical fan you need a ratchet, 1' extension, swivel, and oil filter claw. Put the extension in between the sway bar and the skid plate, then put the claw on the extension with the swivel in between them. The Libertys with the electric fan are much easier to get to. You can loosen and remove the filter with an oil filter strap wrench or pliers from above."
