Re: Volvo Oil Filter Wrench, alternative source from IPD & Volvo!!!!!!!!!!!!! (bouncer)

Yeah, but how much do they get for shipping?<p>IPD is super, and their standard for service is second to none. Probably worth the premium. Just my 2 cents.

I think the 86mm x 16 flute size is probably available at most auto parts stores now. I got a smaller one for my lawnmower recently and noticed at least a dozen larger sizes with various flute-counts on the shelves.<br>
