Re: oil filter keeps BLOWING OUT (xcrament)
You do not need a lift. I changed the rod bearings on my Scirocco (RIP) in the driveway.
Here's all you need;
new oil pump
oil pan gasket
ratchet, extension, sockets
blue locktite (for the pump bolts)
Jack the front of that puppy up, put the stands under it, make sure it's safe.
Unbolt the pan, remove the pump
assembly is the reverse of disassembly...
If you have it towed to a mechanic, all you will do is double or triple the cost of this repair. If you don't have the Bentley, you needed it anyway!
Now, get wrenchin'
