I had to wait a couple of days for the studs from my dealer, so you may want to plan ahead. I actually used a metric bolt (forgot the size) from home depot for a few days while I was waiting for the new stud. I replaced both studs and nuts, just because.

I just did the same thing a while ago. I over torqued the nut and the stud snapped off, and the stud was still left in the cylinder with some length remaining. What I did was I put the nut back on the broken stud, and ease the stud out with the nut. The nut got frozen on the bolt so don't expect to use it again. I went to home depot and got a bolt for the cannister, it was 8mm. That bolt is still on, does not leak, I haven't gotten to the dealer yet for the studs though.

Repeatedly removing and installing the bolt in the aluminum housing will take a toll on the housing. Installing a new stud at your next oil/filter change would be a good thing.

Yup, I agree. I only installed and removed the bolt in mine once. The bolt also felt a little loose compared to the correct stud, I was careful not to over-tighten it for fear of damaging the canister threads.

Sucess is a beautiful thing! Thanks a lot everyone. No heat needed, got the tightest grip possible with my little vice grips and twisted that puppy right out. Put the new one in, new O ring, and I was in business. Now I am fixing some vaccuum lines, and stumbled across something else. Going to take a picture and post it in about 5 minutes. Thanks again, Taylor

Note what happened last December to my recently purchased 240D. While backing out of my driveway, I noticed a huge black puddle and a stream leading to my car. Thankfuly it was daylight so I didn't drive off and wreck the engine. Pulled back in and discovered one of my oil-filter cover studs had pulled out of the canister, stripping most of the aluminum threads. Also found the same thing must have happened to the PO, as the other stud had been replaced with a long bolt.

So I got a pair of matching 8MM bolts long enough to extend comletely through both canister and cover. Then I reamed the last remnants of the stripped threads from the canister, leaving clean holes to accept the bolts, ground the bolt heads so they would seat more precisely against the angled undersides of the canister holes, then inserted those bolts from below to act as new studs.

Oh yeah, and dumped a 25 pound sack of kitty-litter on the driveway to try and clean up the mess, but traces of the stain are still visible after 8 months!

Happy Motoring, Mark
