Default XC60 T6: How do you techs do the oil filter?

I have one diy oil change under my belt and it was a biatch getting the cartridge out from down there due to tight access. I could not get the cap with that internal plastic grid out at all so I ended up changing the o ring 'down there'.

How do you guys do it?

The official procedure involves removing the passenger side headlight and moving the power steering reservoir out of the way. The headlight comes out after removing two clips/stakes so it's not quite as involved as it sounds.

I just push the PS reservoir under the intake manifold

I pull the filter off the cartridge, get it out, then the cartridge. Did it six times today.

Pull the head light and move the power steering reservoir where the head light was. Everyone does this way at my Volvo dealer takes 20 seconds
