NOW ON SALE !!!
This is the O-R-I-G-I-N-A-L billet 4.2 Oil filter housing cap. Its made right here in Atlanta, GA from aerospace grade 6061-T651 aluminum. Dont fall for cheap rip offs made in China out of mystery meat!
GruvenParts.com has released these billet aluminum oil filter housing covers for VW and Audi 4.2L V8 to replace OEM part number 077-115-433B (077115433B). The OEM plastic oil filter housing cover is not very durable and often strips out making it impossible to remove the oil filter. The engine flange which this cover screws into costs over $1,000 and is easily broken while trying to remove a stripped filter housing cover. We plan to put this nonsense to and end!
The GruvenParts billet aluminum oil filter housing cover is made from a massive chunk of Aircraft Grade 6061-T6511 Aluminum. The section is delicately placed onto one of our special CNC machining centers and precision cut to EXACTLY match the OEM plastic housing. The metal gods (well, in this case, one of our highly talented CNC programmers) has programmed elaborate steps for the very time consuming and expensive operation of profiling the special buttress threads into the housing using the exact DIN spec thread cutting tool required for a perfect seal. It simply doesn’t get better than this!
We also provide USEABLE 24mm hex flats so you can easily remove the housing with a standard 24mm socket. This could possibly make changing your oil fun again!
Fits the following vehicles :
VW Phaeton w/4.2L V8 (all years)
Audi A4/S4/Quattro/Cabrio (2002-2007) w/4.2L V8 BHF engine

May fit other vehicles as well, please check to see if your vehicle uses OEM part number 077-115-433B (077115433B) oil filter housing cover before ordering! We cannot be responsible for shipping fees if you order the wrong part.
