Oil filter housing removal

While trying to change my oil today broke one of the screws that holds the oil filter in place is there a quick fix to that or do I need to replace the whole oil filter housing ?

any pictorials available for that ?

thanks

Yep, done that... if you are talking about the ones on top, they are just threaded studs that you can remove ( easily if it did not break of flush). I just removed mine, and went to the local Napa store and bought a replacement and put it back together. Good luck!, hope it is an easy fix. Bob

you can buy a stud remover at most parts stores. only works if there is some sticking out. other wise, drill and ez out(careful!!). also works for installing, if you wrap the stud in duct tape,and be nice.

If there is enough sticking out, then you can grab it with a vice grip and work it out. If it is broken off flush, then you have a bigger problem. The studs are hardened, and brittle. If you know someone with a electric welder, buzz box style, you can set a bolt in the clamp and then put the bolt on the top of the broken stud. Turn on the buzz box and hope that the bolt welds itself to the stud. Then let it cool and try to turn it out. Trying to drill them is very difficult. Before you ruin the housing, take it off and see if a local machine shop can remove the bolt. Remember, patience is the only way, because once you loose patience, you will ruin the part. I speak from experience, because I did the same thing with my 300SD, and wound up buying a new housing in the end. I was too impatient to follow my own good advise and was in a rush to fix it.

Thankfully I still have some thread sticking out, so removal shouldn't be much of a problem, what is the name for the correct replacement part ?

thanks

it is a stud. bring it in to a good parts house, measuring the other one to get a good idea of overall lentgh, and they will help you. may not be a bad idea to do both. should be about a buck apiece.

Also, if the stud does not want to come out easily, since the housing is aluminum, you can heat it with a propane or mapp gas torch right outside of the boss where the stud goes into, just heat it enough to see the "sweat " dry off the metal, dont heat it a long time as you run a chance of melting the housing. should heat up enough very quickly (aluminum expands faster than steel allowing the threads to loosen on the stud some. you may want to set the cover on (without o-ring) or wipe the inside of the housing clean in that area as well to avoid excess smoking and chance of fire. Also be careful of other things nearby. Do NOT use oxy acetylene, you'll melt it on contact.

Personally i would not mess around trying to remove a stud.
Go to the local pick and pull and get a new housing for 10buck. order with phil a new gasket and a new filter... cost 30 bucks!
