Whilst there are other considerations .... if whatever filter grip you are using doesn't release the filter. Gently wack a large screw driver through the filter (use a suitable oil catch tray!!). Hold the assembly wherever you can with a spanner or molegrip and remove the filter and anything else that may come with it!!

Notwithstanding the excellent advice already given above, the chances are the nipple (threaded pipe with a hex on it to hold the oil cooler and connect the filter to) is stuck in the filter. Once you get things moving, you should be able to simply unscrew the filter and nipple leaving the cooler in place (but i would still renew the seal #5 as already advised) then use a spanner on the hex of the nipple to remove it from the filter.

Once out, clean the threads on the nipple and in the block and after fitting the new seal(s), put a drop of Threadlock on the threads of the nipple that go into the block then tighten to 45lbft (~33Nm) and leave it for a minimum of 20 minutes for the Threadlock to set before fitting the new filter correctly by hand.

Hi Dave

Are you talking about putting threadlock on bolt 2 that goes into the block or bolt 8 ( threaded pipe )which hold the oil cooler in place and the filter screws onto ?

Whichever one has come adrift from where it should be Mark. It's simpler on my 760, there's not an elbow affair like in the diagram you've shown, the cooler is literally sandwiched between the filter and block and i believe some redblocks use a similar arrangement, depending on the year.

Whichever it is, it sounds as if the nipple (hollow threaded bolt with heax part way along) has come loose from either the block or the elbow adaptor and isn't holding the cooler as it should.

How do I contact Volvo to get the o ring from them, I recall someone saying go to the FRF website before to get parts from them?

At work so donít have phone number for FRF on me , but I have found email details I posted on another thread so try this.

Alternatively I couldn't recommend highly enough Chris Harris from FRF Volvo in Swansea, if you email him on chrisharris@frf-motors.co.uk give your VIN and what you're after, he is very helpful. Also ask for VOC discount, varies but usually between 10-30%

Might be worth calling to discuss whatís needed, other hoses as suggested earlier I think.

Good luck👍
Cheers

Got the filter off. Now is the trouble of trying to get the sandwich plate off. Is the number 8 tube that holds it in place reverse threaded? And what size is it ? Iíve tried a few sockets and come to the conclusion that itís around the 26mm mark, which I donít have.

Phone your normal main dealer or FRF. (01792 790066 or 01792 784272 )
They sometimes take a while to answer or line clears but donít despair, just give it a while and try again.

Normal thread as far as i'm aware, certainly is on the 760 anyway. I think it's 1" which is 25.4mm but if you have a vice you could at least get it out of the filter by putting it in the vice and removing the filter as normal. Hopefully nobody has cross-threaded the filter onto it or you might be in trouble.

Got the sandwich plate out and you guys were correct that seal has definitely seen better days. The stud looks ok though.
