    Default Oil filter adapter gasket?

    Hello All,
    It looks like I have several small oil leaks.
    The first seems to be from the Oil filter adapter gasket or oil pressure sensor.

    I found several threads that describe the process of removing the filter then the 4 x 10mm bolts through “the sway bar links?”

    Does anyone have any pictures?
    Any advice?

    You might want to drain the coolant before doing this job.
    I went it through the wheel welp with a ujoint and a decent extension. Wiggled my left armwith the socket in there and put it on the bolt and then shoved the extension and stuff on there through the wheel well and did that for all 4 bolts. Getting it back on is a little harder. Used a long rod to go through the holes and hold it in place while the other bolts were put in. A boltholding socket is very helpful here.

    I thought it would be a good idea to lower my car right before winter.

    I can only find this one. I know I took a lot of them, but can't find them, this was 2 cell phones ago.

    I hope you took the filter off before going at that...
