I have a 2006 S40 and I just found out that the A/C compressor has to be at least loosened , I just don't know if there is enough room to push the compressor to the side and drop the oil pan.
Has anyone done this job on this model? if so please let me know where I can read about it.
Thank you
Thank you all for the information - I am ready to tackle this job tomorrow on my 2006 S80 turbo AWD.
When I remove the front engine mount behind the passenger tire will do I have to remove anything else like the compressor or drop the subframe?
the transmission mount does not appear to be in the way and there are no lines under the pan as in earlier models.

Anything you learned from your 2006 would be helpful....
Thanks

Resurrecting an old thread here, I'm getting ready to do this on an 01 xc. Why it is required to use ramps not a floor jack to put jackstands under the door rails ?

Tks

I replaced my oil sump without touching the engine mounts. At 70K miles they where probably less worn making space enough to remove the oil pan without anything more than bending the power steering pipes. However I wasn't smart enough to change the O-rings.

You can raise it with floor jack and set it on jack stands. PRACTICE SAFETY!

So I just got done, thanks to the op for the excellent write up. My 2001 xc is simpler. Didn't even see the power steering lines in this one and I didn't have to mess with the engine mount. It only took a few seconds of wiggling to get it out. My o -rings looked fine and my pick up filter wasn't really clogged. I think someone had already done this job. None of the bolts were too hard.

Excellent writeup! After reading it, I'm glad I had a shop do the job for my car, but someone with more inclination could sure benefit. For anyone wondering, this job will often take care of "ticking" in the lifters. In my case, the ticking would occur if the oil level was a little low. The dried out o-rings make for poor suction of oil up the tube from the pan, so the lifters can get a bit starved of oil.
I've got a bag of o-rings and gaskets and my oil pan on the floor of my shop. Remembering having to re-do the nightmarish heater core replacement, I'm looking at this stuff thinking, "don't move until you're sure you've got it right." Your write-up gave me the confidence to proceed. Thanks!
