oil filter plastic tower - remove Q?
replacing oil cooler.
how do I remove the black plastic oil filter tower. I know the manual says to remove the one hex bolt, I did that but does not come out. I noticed there was two others but didn't go any further in fear of breaking something.
Also, I am ready to remove the oil cooler assembly from the engine valley, couple of questions -
I vacummed as best as I could and I will take brake cleaner and scrub the valley till my fingers bleed. I stuffed rags in all of the intake openings and turbo oil drain hole. Is there any way to suck some of the oil out of the cooler before I pull to eliminate the huge mess of oil? Or just get the valley clean and prepare for the oil?
thanks guys, support on here is awesome.
