In it are 24 of the 6mmUDx10mmODx2mmW O-rings that you need for the bottom of the Oil Filter Stem: enough for 12 Oil Filter Changes as you need 2 O-rings each time you change it.
The 10mmIDx17mmODx2.5mm in the kit fits the bottom of the Filter Bolt; you get 24 of those in the kit.
The 14mmIDx19mmODx2.5mmW appears to fit the large upper O-ring (if you have the Filter Bolt that takes 2 O-rings) but I have not actually tried that yet.
You get a total of 172 O-rings in various sizes.
I will go to Autozone tomorrow and get the kit before I start the filter job. I plan on changing my oil again in September.
So it is possible my filter bolt may need 2 o-rings? I assume it will be apparent when I remove the bolt. The bolts that have 2 o-rings must have 2 recessed places for the o-rings to sit and one o-ring bolt must only have 1?
Sorry if I'm being over analytical.
