Thanks for the vid! Did you also replace the two o-rings? If so, any tips on that?

Anyone know the exact torque spec for the pressure limiting valve.

Thanks for the love guys - I knew the work would be appreciated.

I don't think the tq. spec matters, but thats my opinion.

I did not replace the other rings, they seemed fine and my car only has 23k miles on it.

As for how often you should replace it? I would say at least check its condition every time you do an oil change, the part cost next to nothing (the filter cartridge) so there is no reason no to check and replace often.

I checked mine at 140,000 KM's and there was very little debris collected in the strainer. This is the first time to my knowledge that it has been looked at.

I just changed my filter. Confused on the o-rings. The big one was easy to locate. The smaller o-ring did not match the o-ring in place. Any one else find this the case?
