Remove the remaining screws.
Remove the sump.

Cleaning

Use a razor blade or a gasket scraper and gasket solvent P/N 1161440

Warning Use a fume hood or extractor when using gasket solvent.(Fan if inside a garage)

Installing the oil pan

Apply liquid gasket P/N 1161 059-9 to the sump use roller P/N 951 2767 (Or mini roller from hardware store)

Install new o-rings
The oil sump.
Secure it loosely with a few screws.
Then the remaining screws.

Press the pump against the transmission
Tighten the screws (1),(2),(3) and (4) to 3Nm.

First tighten the screws (5) to 25Nm.
Then tighten to 48 Nm.
Tighten all screws in the sump joint to 17 Nm.
Start at the transmisson and continue fowards in pairs.
Install the screw for the bracket for the fuel line.
Connect the oil cooler to the sump.
Use new o-rings.
Reinstall the pipe to the subframe.

Install
A new oil filter
The oil drain plug with a new o-ring
The dipstick and its pipe also use a new o-ring.

Note: check that all the o-rings are positions are correctly.

Fill the engine oil.
Run the engine to operating temp.
Check for oil leaks from the sump or the oil cooler.
Install the splash sheild under the engine.
Check the oil level.Top it off if needed.

Some more notes:
You may have to support the Right side of the engine and drop the subframe a little to get the pan out.

Have someone help you when installing the pan and watch the o-rings to make sure they do not fall while installing the pan.

Make sure when the pan is off you remove the pipe in the oil pan and replace those o-rings at the same time when you have it apart.

Also make sure you remove the oil pick up tube and replace that o-ring.

I think that is about all.
If there is anymore quiestions feel free to ask.

Sorry but I don't have the part # for the o-ring kit but the dealer sells it as a kit.

Unbelieveable. I bought my Volvo b/c a mechanic and my sis' who are life-long owners recommended, but now I am having flashbacks of my 1979 fiat 128 (god, I miss that car). I want to believe... What I am trying to say is that it seems complicated for an O-ring change; not to inpune the wonderful and selfless advice that you, tech, obviously faithfully provide Volvo owners day in and day out-thank goodness!. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Am I missing something?

Sorry to bring up an old thread but i'm trying to replace the oil pan. It looks like there are 2 bolts left that i need to remove but the problem is they are directly above/below the subframe. I seen in your post that you said you might have to support the right side of the motor. My question is, will a jack suffice? and if so, then would i just need to disconnect the motor mount and then the 2 bolts holding the subframe? or do I need to remove the entire subframe? anything else on the motor I would need to disconnect.
This is on a S40 BTW
I would greatly appreciate your help!!!

Thanks,
Justin
