Always Follow The Instructions...

Every spin-on oil filter I ever installed has instructions to "tighten 3/4 to 1 turn after gasket contacts surface". Believe it or not, overtightening is more likely to cause leaks because it can distort the seal.

The part Shag needs is:

Breather Hose, Part # 103 094 10 82 From FastLane - $10.27

FYI, all part numbers used by FastLane are Mercedes part #'s.
