OOO My MINI use the canister type oil filter as well. I have to use a really big socket, i thing its a 20 or 22, to undo the center nut. once u have that off, open it up, and pull the old filter out. Then insert the new one and close it up. It's a little messier than the normal filters used on most vehicles now a days. but its pretty easy to do still.

If there are O-rings to be replaced, don't forget those too! I don't know for sure about your FUSO truck, but when I had to change these assembly type oil filters they had to be reassembled in a certain way (archaic yes), so I'd note the way the canister is oriented after taking it off.
