Large O-ring for element style filter #5347853 02/12/20 07:13 AM

My car takes an element style oil filter (2007 Volvo V70). The oil filters always come with a large O-ring for the housing.

A RockAuto order included 2 Denso 150-3049 filters both of which had the wrong size O-ring.

The order was placed last year so RA acknowledged the problem but wouldn't do anything for me.

Denso said they couldn't do anything for me.

Does anyone know where to get the large O-rings?

I’ve looked on my usual Volvo sources: www.ipdusa.com www.fcpeuro.com www.tascaparts.com and can’t find it separately.

My recommendation would be to call a dealer and ask if they have it as a separate part.

If they don’t, and they may not, I’ve used Mahle filters with good results in my Volvos. $50 for ten from IPD. At that price, it may be cheaper to buy another filter than to buy just the o-ring... and while tossing a perfectly good filter for want of an o-ring would irritate me, too, in the long run it’s probably cheaper...

If it looked OK , I would re-use the old O-Ring .

Our Sonic has a canister filter & an O-Ring for the plastic filter cap . Sounds similar .

If the dealer can't get you on for free or cheap, I would go buy another filter.

Check the price of filters from rockauto.com . I order them 6 - 12 at a time to spread out the cost of freight .

I save the old O-Rings ( on our Sonic ) in case I get a filter w/o one .

These O-rings are typically sold as part of a kit with the cartridge filter. I would just eat the cost and buy a new filter kit. Re-using the O-ring is ill advised if it has been in service for the factory OCI. Do you feel lucky?

Try NAPA or ACE hardware. Have to make sure it's oil resistant.

no-no

Use Mann, Mahle, or Hengst. Rock Auto carries all three for your Volvo smile

If your local dealer is typical, they don't take the extra time to install new o-rings, and only replace the drain plug washer if they drop it and the replacement is easier to grab.

It's not that big of a deal to re-use the old one. There are similar seals throughout the engine that are expected to last for decades. A reasonable compromise is replacing the seal every second oil change, which might mean buying a fresh kit for your next change.

Personally, I would not reuse the seal. Just get another filter.
Good luck.

I will have to respectfully disagree with its no big deal to re use old seal on cartridge filter. Saw firsthand some "O" ring seals that were flat like instead of round and smooth at work more times than I care. If the cartridge includes a new o ring seal use it

I've reused one through several changes and ~50k miles. No leak.
