    RTAC155 oil filter & Check valve replacement

    I will be replacing the oil filter on a RTAC155 soon. I spoke with Trane tech. support, and they stated that there was a service bulletin released on replacing the check valve behind the oil filter. Tech support suggested that the check valve be replace at the time of the oil filter replacement. So, I was wondering if anyone knew of any tricks that might be hepful, or snags to look out for.
    Thanks.

    Be sure to evacuate filter housing along with compressor, or you will get an oil bath.

    cperk is right. You'll still have like 100-150 psi in that filter housing after a service pumpdown.

    Good thing you can't remove the last bolt before removing the drain plug.

    I don't know of any bulletins that relate specifically to the oil control valve. There is a very general procedure outlined in one of the troubleshooting manuals, though.
