Anyone know a good aftermarket oil pan for the 2008 S40 2.4i?

Dealer wants $1,040 for parts and labor
One indie shop wants $1,275 for PL
Another Volvo indie shop wants $745, and will do it cheaper if I provide an oil pan.

Suggestions please
Thanks

That is a LOT for labor. Call some local junk yards. The pan shouldn't be too bad to do on your own even with basic tools and knowledge.

I have the mechanical aptitude and experience to do the job myself. I am an aircraft mechanic. I just recently moved across country from a house into an apartment, thus have lost access to a garage. Apartment forbids car maintenance in the parking lot. So stuck with hired labor.

buy a pan used.
find a gas station who will rent a lift, do it your self. when i worked with the military i could use motor pool equipment, are you with px privileges?

if so you could use them with permission. also i one time used a community college auto shop.

just suggestions,

good luck with it.
