Would there be any intrest with a Oil Filter Cover with a 3/8 socket end built in ? <p>would be a direct swap for your plastic one and would be able with a 3/8 wrench just spin it right out so you wont have to worry about a strap wrench or what ever. <p><br>Just a thought off the top of my sleepy head. <p>I am ehhh on plastic but I would bet volvo made this plastic for a reason but I cant see why a metal one wouldnt work since the orignal ones 850 and older have all been metal. <p>So thoughts , ideas , concerns ? <p>And should be cheap also thinking aluminum for this $50 each max ?

From what I understand, <A HREF="http://www.amazon.com/Assenmacher-Specialty-Tools-ASTV410-Filter/dp/B001L881X8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1249483148&sr=8-2" TARGET="_blank">this wrench cap</A> is what you want/need (or, alternately, <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/version.asp?strPageHistory=category&numSearchStartRecord=0&strParents=127,382&P_ID=581&CAT_ID=382&V_ID=10997" TARGET="_blank">a few of these</A> as they tend to wear out?)
