Installing oil filter

I can't remember how the oil filter goes back in the housing. There are two other pieces. One looks like a spacer, and the other is a screen. I didn't pay attention will disassembling. Also i can't remove the housing grom the engine compartment. there is no room to pull it out from the top or the bottom. Thanks for you help

thank you. I think I'll put it back together with the canister still in engine compartment. Sounds easier than jacking the motor. Think this is possible?

Those are a ***** even when brand new off the show room floor and takes a bit of finageling to get completely out . You may have to jack up the engine just a bit to clear the frame better and be Damn sure to use a rounded o ring not a flat one and be sure it(The Canister is seated into the housing well before tightening it as it is very easy to get it crooked .
I cant find a round rubber washer to save my life every place has the flat ones am I doomed to ordering a bunch from a seal distributor or am I missing something I have tried 3 brands of filters all came with flat washers and they bloody leak.
