Bought a Crosland air filter from ECP using car reg and, although the dimension is the same, there is a slight difference between the two.

The new one has a separate stalk(?) that I assume goes through the hole in the filter casing to create the nipple at the bottom.

However the stalk is a solid piece of plastic with no hole through the middle like there is in the old one.

Is this right?

Thanks

Ok.

Double checked the old one and the hole doesn't go through, its just a blank.

Carry on.

You can see the difference in quality between those 2. Far less filter material in the

Crosland filter.

 

Please buy better oil filters, its the life of the engine at stake.  For my car the Bosch filter is only

£1.30 more than the Crosland.

 

The Crosland should be changed a lot sooner than a better quality filter with a greater surface area.

Could cost more unless your selling it soon and just want to show it was changed.

 

 

Just my opinion and you are free to tell me to shut and I am wrong. :D

That filter doesn’t look right, that blank is quite important for oil pressure! It engages in a hole within oil filter housing.

Swap it for a decent filter!

To be fair my daughter bought the service items for me to fit. But then again I would probably have bought the Crosland too.

Can you explain why it doesnt look right?

After post #4

 

Looking closer it looks longer, is that just down to the camera position/angle?

 

Plastic tabs appear to be missing?

Same dimensions. I assume the plastic flanges are for locating in the housing. I fitted the stalk to the filter and it located in the filter housing Ok.
Car is running fine with no oil light so I'm fairly happy.

What vehicle are we talking about? As after closer inspection I don’t recognise either filter.
