Re: Oil filter change on V6

I managed to undo mine by squeezing my hand down the back of the engine from above and just gripping the end of the filter and undid it by hand,it was last done at the main dealers and it wasn't very tight at all which would explain the oil leak from it.
I wonder if they all do this at the dealers so its easy to remove next time it comes in for a service.
After unscrewing it I just let it fall down onto the exhaust but as I couldn't get it down between the pipes,I managed to put my hand in past the steering rack rubber bellows from the drivers side wheelarch and maneouvere it out through there.
I screwed the new one on tighter though as the thought of it falling of doesn't bear thinking about.

Re: Oil filter change on V6

i successfully changed the oil filter on my v6 by removing the retaining bracket holding the power steering /aircon pipes but in doing so the top bolt sheerd off. what am i supposed to do? one bolt is not enough to hold it in place so have cable tied it to the lower suspension arm but its not really secure enough and rattles around. any ideas?
would i be able to change the whole bracket with something from a scrappy or is it part of the engine or something that cant be easily replaced?
