Year and Trim: 1995 Bonneville SSEi
Just bought a 1995 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi with an oil leak. After spraying brake clean near the oil leak area, I ran the engine and saw what looked like a leak from the oil filter housing seam (The piece that connects the oil filter to the timing cover). How hard is it to replace this seal?

It's not too bad. Be aware there is a spring and plunger being held in by the adapter. Pay attention to which way it's installed. You might get a new spring and plunger to put in, as prevention.

Ok, what does the spring do / what does it look like, and what is needed to be done to remove the housing?

The spring is what regulates the oil pressure bypass. The spring is roughly the size of a double a battery. The plunger is a metal cylinder maybe a half inch long. I think the spring goes into the front cover and the plunger is on the oil filter adapter end of it.

Being supercharged, you'll have an oil cooler that has lines that run into the housing and they'll be the hardest part. Space is tight to get a wrench on them. Once the adapter is off, scraping the old gasket off will be tedious.
