FYI, The welded on nut on K&N filters doesn't always work. It's just formed sheet metal and if the filter is really stuck on there isn't enough for a socket to get a decent grip.
You can't always blame the tech. I do my own maintenance and have managed to get filters jammed on a couple of times. I'm pretty careful about not over tightening them.
Also, I'd try a lot of things before resorting to jamming a screwdriver through it. The filter is just thin metal. The screwdriver can tear through it without budging it and then you'll be left with nothing to get a grip on if it doesn't work. I picked up a filter removal tool at advanced auto that has three finger that tighten down the harder you turn it. The fingers fit over the end but still clear the cylinder base. You can find them at Wally mart or wherever
