IF your lines just have metal flared fittings, then dont worry about the quick disconnect ones.
Here is how you replace the Oil filter housing.
Remove the oil filter.
Remove the oil cooler lines.
Remove the bolts.
Remove the oil filter adapter.
Remove the gasket and seal.
Install the oil filter adapter gasket.
Install the oil filter adapter.
Install the bolts.
Tighten the bolts to 20 Nm (18 ft. Lbs.).
Install the oil cooler lines.
Install the oil filter.
Install the engine oil, as needed.
When you remove the cooler lines, you will just need to unscrew the flared nuts. On the housing itself you will probably find that the cooler lines have removable fittings that have o-rings under them. After you have the housing out, you can remove the fittings and replace the o-rings. There is a gasket above the housing that needs to be replaced. If this is where you have a leak, then I would replace all of the seals, and be sure to inspect the fittings and housing for cracks.
