2004 Honda CR-V Question: Is there an oil drip pan/catcher to direct the oil when changing the oil filter?

 

Question

The oil filter is fairly easy to get to and change from the top of the engine, but the residue oil from the filter drips onto the passenger side wheel drive linkage and other support brackets. Is there some type of drip pan or oil catcher available to direct the oil into the drip pan on the floor?

    Fabricate one out of an old milk jug, 2L soda bottle or any size plastic container. Use your imagination!
    Easy, cut the bottom to fit, works at the shop better than most other ready made tools.
