      2016 V60 CC canít seem to access the Oil Filter cover with 36mm socket to remove cap. Anyone able to help?

      Since my 2016 V60 CC has the upper oil filter with the cap near the engine, I canít seem to get enough leverage to loosen the cap and replace the filter. I am trying to post the pics and so far havenít had much luck. I have the correct socket wrench with extension and even bought the flexible connector, yet it doesnít budge. I was thinking perhaps I need to go straight down to the cap with the socket wrench. Iím not sure how to remove the air intake (if thatís what itís called) directly above the area where the oil filter cap is located. Any suggestions would be great and or even pics or? Thanks in advance! Dave

      Get a larger ratchet. I use a 18in flex ratchet.

      5 or 6 cylinder?

      You probably need a swivel adapter or u joint to get to it, especially if it's a 5 cylinder. Use a long extension so your ratchet handle is actually above the intake. They are usually pretty tight.

      i haven't needed a swivel on my XC60. That's been the relatively easy part. The fun bit is extracting the cover and element out from all of the obstacles while hot.

      One trick is to pop the headlight out to provide more room. Unhook the power steering reservoir and put it where the headlight was - plenty of room then.

      On the six cylinder you get a straighter shot at the filter housing if you remove the engine cover.
