'94 d-90 Oil filter housing

I just had my d-90 at the dealership and they said this needs to be replaced. However, they want $549.00 for it YIKES! Anyone have one of these that I could get for a better price?

How easy is it to install?

thanks

If I'm not mistaken, the oil filter housing is the whole front cover. Why does the dealer suggest it needs replacement? Several of the typical oil leaks can be fixed w/o replacing the whole cover. Tell us more!

Oil filter housing, or oil filter adapter? I have a spare adapter sitting around the house.

$549 is the front cover price.

I haven't got a clue... but it sounds like the front cover is what I need. So if the front cover is bad, would that cause it to leak?

If that's installed, it's not a bad price at all..... which makes me think they are either talking just the parts for a front cover or maybe only the base plate. If it's the baseplate installed, that's a bit steep but not TOO bad.

If it's just the baseplate and new gears, the install isn't hard at all. The front cover is a different story, as you have to really rip everything off the front of the engine. What problem are you trying to fix?

This is what the quote they gave me says:

"Oil Filter Housing leaks:
parts $545.00
labor $40.00"

so whatever that means...

I'd want more specificity before handing over 6 bills.
