Can you check know out that photo that I just sent. Is That The cap For The Housing For The Oil FILTER?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The black cap I mean
Expert:  david craig replied 11 months ago.

yes, that the cap tp the oil filter. its a cartidge filter that some cars use now. i believe its a 32mm socket you use to take it off. be careful coz they are on there very tight

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Is that the right filter that I have bought? Is that a complete set? Are the top and bottom of this filter as in the picture part of the filter housing?
Expert:  david craig replied 11 months ago.

that is correct. when you loosen the cap and pull the old filter out, it pulls right out of the cap. be sure to replace the large o ring thats on the threads of the cap too. all you do is pop the new one in then thread the cap back on
