Another Heat Victim: Oil Filter Mount

That is, part #11421436982.

A few tips:

  • Get a piece of wire or a string to hold the oil filter away from the bracket;
  • Don't try to find the nut on the bottom - there's none, the thread is in the bracket;
  • Careful when unscrewing the mount from the bracket - it may break off at the bottom and give you hard time trying to extract something you can't get a hold of (lower left piece on the picture above).
Check yours when you change oil - chances are, it needs replacement now, or will soon.
