      dude we would need to know the year make and model with the engine size to be able to help you. Some are replacable and some are not. and a pic would also help

      i have the same exact problem i know that there goes the 8 shape o ring, is the one that goes between the block and oil filter housing.... do i need to remove the A/C hoses or just get the belt loose and the air compressor and move it a little bit to the side without taking the hoses off? my car is a mk4 jetta vr6 2001, if possible can anyone write all the tools needed to do the job, thanks in advance...
