I presume it is the cylinder type that goes into the side of the van? I found that if I used a pair of water pump pliers or similar but spread the load by clamping the jaws down onto 2 two pence pieces, i.e. make a sandwitch of the part of the filter housing you twist with the coins, the filter could be unscrewed.

Try not to wrench it or the plastis can break, better to use a constant force and wait for the seal to release.
