+1 on what Der Flieger says. Granted all of my experience is on the R171. Make sure that you put some new oil on all three of the O rings. Then I just twist it on by hand until the plastic lip seats on the metal housing. Take pictures as you go in case you can't remember. One key thing I always forget is how far the filter goes into the plastic top. I have attached a picture of mine ready to re-assemble.
If you won't tell anybody I use this wrench to take it off.
The little scratches don't seem to hurt anything.
There's a great DIY thread on a 320 in the R170 forum. http://www.slkworld.com/slk-r170-gen...ange-pics.html
