Yes. I just use a Awl, but make sure you go all the way through. I put the punch as far as it will go about 4". Let all the oil drain in the pan and when it stops unscrew without a mess when the filter comes off.

Fords been using that same filter for a long time, had the same one on my 2000 as well. I just use a phillips screwdriver and punch right up the middle when changing, the metal is pretty thin so it doesn't take much punch to pierce it.

Guess it's cheaper to buy a lot of the same thing then to change it every year, especially if they work.
