Condition

Coolant leaking at oil cooler hoses.
May be caused by oil cooler turning when
removing or installing the oil filter.
Service
When replacing the oil filter:
– Observe oil cooler when loosening oil filter.
Note:
If necessary, hold oil cooler while removing
filter. If oil cooler moves too far, damage to
coolant hoses may result!
If oil cooler moves from its original position:
– With oil filter removed, loosen oil cooler nut
(arrow) and adjust cooler back to its original
position (against stop -white arrow- if
equipped).
– Check oil cooler hoses.
*Cooler hoses should not be twisted or
pinched.
– Tighten oil cooler nut (Torque = 30Nm).
– Install oil filter and tighten by hand making
sure that oil cooler does not move.
– Inspect cooler hoses to ensure they are not
twisted or pinched.
Tip:
Installation instructions are now printed on oil
filters (no change in part Numbers)
