I might add that when re-tightening the nuts that hold the oil filter lid onto the housing, pleaase use utmost care not to overtighten them. Just tighten them until you meet resistance. If you try to tighten them further, you risk breaking one of the studs off, and then the car becomes undriveable until you have new studs put in. Just a word of advice!

P.S.--this is on diesels
