anyone know how to change the oil cooler? i had to change my oil, and i have my coolant drained already because i just did my powersteering pump. mines oil cooler has been leaking coolent for a while now so i ordered the 2 new hoses and a cooler, but am a little stumped on how it goes on there and comes off. also it doesnt have a threaded fitting for the filter, do i transfer that?

There is a locking threaded nut (maybe 5mm thick if so much) that needs to come off.Its between the oil cooler and the oil filter.unscrew the filter and it should be exposed.Its going to be tricky to get to in the car so grab a size 30mm+ socket and some extensioners + swivles

You're not going to make me do it?
