DIY: Oil Filter Housing Gasket (video)

Hey guys,

Just finished editing this video on how to change the oil filter housing gasket. I'm really happy with the way it came out. Got a nice tip on removing the alternator so that you can get it back on really easily. Please check it out if you are interested:

Let me know if you have any questions.

The video makes it look so easy and all done in just around 27min.

What year/model car was this on?

Did you replace the Oil Separator (CCV) also?

Great vid.

It really is easy. It's all about having the confidence to do it, you know?

This is on a 2002 330i.

I'm working on a vid to replace the CCV system by removing the intake. Already a couple of vids out there on breaking the old one and then a big cut to where the guy tells you that he just "somehow" got the new hoses into the new CCV with an apology for not filming it. I'll show you the full and complete way so you can have the confidence to do it. I've already done the job once, before I started filming things. Of course, I also took like 3 of them apart in the junkyard looking for a new lower hose. Great learning tool.

Just did this today. Your video gave me the confidence to take it on. The old gasket broke into about 15 pieces when I took it out. Figured this was as good a time as any to change the belts out since they were off anyway.
