I've seen some threads about this but don't really understand it!
I'm going to change my oil filter, I already have the low profile 36mm socket.
At the dealer they gave me an oil filter that has the plastic cage inside, but I'm sure that I still have the older type of oil filter housing cap since my mini cooper is a 2003 model and the nut on top is solid.
SO can i use this oil filter and just leave out the spring and plastic cage ? or will I have to replace the cap to the newer one ? Or should I go back to the garage and ask give me an old type ?
Just need to know
