    XUV 855 Oil filter change

    I have a 2012 XUV 855D that i was changing oil and filter for the first time. Removing the oil filter has limited space. I tried both filter wrench and filter cap, with the filter cap from JD. Neither removed the filter. Has anyone had the same problem. I eventually got the filter off but very difficult. Thanks

    I have yet to change oil in mine. Only 14 hours..........

    But I have had issues with other new Yanmar motors and Diesel trucks where it seems super man put on the filter. Both of my Duramax trucks were bad. You could put a filter on less than hand tight and 5,000 miles later you could not get it off the engine. Even with a lot of oil on the gasket.

    In my experience all factory installed spin on filters are ridiculously over tight and a bear to remove. After the initial replacement, they're a lot better.

    What he said. Every piece of equipment I've ever worked on with a factory new filter was a real fight to change. One of the worst was a Peterbilt road tractor, one of the first 'prototype' trucks out with the DPF and emissions equipment in late '07. The fact that I still remember it speaks to just how awful it was!

    Thanks for the support. I put the filter on hand tight so hoping next time will be better.

    This is interesting because, all these filters tell you "oil the gasket with clean oil & hand tighten after contact". I'm wondering why they are on there so super tight from the factory? There must be a reason for that, on the newly built engines, but what is it? Are they worried about leakes or maybe some dirt or contamination on the engine mounting flange & over tightening prevents any leak?

    In my mind, I assumed it was due to a machine installing it or air tools in the assembly line.

    And probably a dry gasket.

    It could very well be that they install the first one by air tools, but I really don't think so. And we don't know if the engines come to the assembly line with the filter on the engine. Oe is the filter put on AFTER the engine is put in place


    A dry gasket would di it I think. But then I think we would be reading complaints here about filters on new engines being fried to the mounting flange due to no lubrication. I would think that this is a really good question that needs to be answered by someone from the engine or tractor assembly line. Maybe a dealer could find out what's up with this.
