I understand that you have to be careful when changing the 1.6 oil element. I would like to know the following if there is anyone out there who has done it and could explain.

1. Does the oil all spill out when unscrewing the bowl?
2. Is it necessary to replace the large bowl seal and is it supplied with the filter
3. How does the plastic tube fit - into the bowl or housing?
4. how tight does the bowl need to be (Torque)

I have fitted many filter elements in the past but this new design is very different.

Help please

Hello Jack

To answer your questions;

1. A small amount of oil will spill out. This is inevitable due to the design of the filter-housing

2. The o-ring seal is supplied with the filter, at least with the Citroen (Purflux) filter.

3. The tube goes into the housing, impossible to fit it the wrong way. The filter element is mounted into the cover and the whole thing screwed onto the housing.

4. The torque is "stamped" on the plastic cover

dont forget to wipe a small amount of oil around the new seal (o-ring),both sides, this helps in sealing the new oil filter ,and hand tight is the answer

Are you sure about 'hand tight?' It does say 25 Nm on the plastic cover.

Why bother anyway? Pay for the oill and filter and the fitting is free at most of the well known tyre outlets and all makes servicing franchises.

They probably use the cheapest oil and a rubbish filter thus the cheap price.

Pay for good oil, pay for good filter and the fitting is still free!
