Even easier if its a 240D you have, just chop off the hoses and plug the fittings at the oil filter housing and throw away the oil cooler. If you have a 300, gota keep the cooler. As far as the metal part of the hoses I would imagine it was put there to avoid chafe. I am sure someone else will answer that. I have two 240Ds that are euro cars and never had oil coolers and if they are not needed in Germany they are not needed in western Washington, one less thing not to screw up. I know of one member here that has driven many miles in Texas with no oil cooler. You didn't mention what car you have. Good Luck
