2.2 oil filter housing won't budge

Hi everyone,
I've recently purchased a 2.2 Antara.
I'm changing the oil and filter, but the aluminium filter housing won't budge. I've tried with a 27mm socket and bar. I've tried using a filter wrench around the housing but to no avail.
Some useless spark has really overtightened it!
Any suggestions how to release it please?
Thanks Graham 😊

it has probably been done up with a impact wrench gun. You could take it to a local garage and ask them to undo it with their gun. Richy
