T31 Diesel Oil filter?


Guys,

Been a while since I visited.
Am about to start servicing the Koleos myself.
The first thing....where is the oil filter element housed?
Not really obvious?!

Thanks,

David

You will see it looking at the R/H side front wheel.
Its semi concealed behind the splash guard.

Re: T31 Diesel Oil filter?


Tony, that's not the case with the M9R T31 diesel engine which has a completely different oil filter type. It is a cartridge type like the one below

The M9R oil filter is located as part of the oil coolant assembly at the front of the engine block

Dave: Make sure you buy the oil filter first before you attempt to change it. No aftermarket options are available, so you gonna have to buy and/or order one from the dealer.

Re: T31 Diesel Oil filter?


Just crawled out from underneath the beast.
The only thing I saw remotely like an oil housing was up front behind the bumper.
Then i opened your post jalalski and suspicions confirmed.
Have got the filter element in my hand.
Bought that when I first got the car.
Similar to the one on the Golf my wife uses.

Thanks all,

David

Re:


Righto:

Use 27MM socket to remove housing. Wash housing in petrol to remove sediment that accumulates in bottom of bowl. Filter housing is actually in a good position as it is low and looks as though will self-prime with oil when filled.

Filter housing is labelled Perflux. Well known in Renault circles (we say best in world - but what do we know?).
Uses Perflux L360 filter element - see image (compare with Renault box).
I picked the Perflux filter up at Caravelle Imports - Rowern Court Box Hill North (for those of you in Melbournes eastern suburbs).

With 7.5L of oil - should be good for the recommended 15K service intervals.

Re: Oil filter type


HI Guys, a bit after the event I know but I've just purchased a 2010 diesel X-Trail that I presume is the T31 engine but how do you know what oil filter it uses? There seems to be two types, one cartridge, one internal element? Is it only by inspection?, is so I'll have to take off that annoying cover panel they use. Mine is an auto if that makes any difference. Thanks.

Re: OIl filter type


Hi Jalal

Do you know why there is two types, are we talking two different spec engines or one is a later model? Thanks.

Regards
Peter
