Use a 32mm socket to unscrew the housing cap from the engine.
Remove the old filter, and transfer the filter retainer valve to the ECS cap using a metal pry tool to remove from OE cap.
Install the OE filter retainer valve, new o-rings, and oil filter contained a new filter kit into the new billet oil filter cap.
Screw the housing on to the engine, and torque to 25Nm or 18ft lbs.
Add a Audi approved 502 / 505 engine oil. (Not sure about the right oil? Visit our Maintenance section!)
That's it. No more cracked housings. No more plastic filter caps mangled by adjustable pliers.Talk about a no-brainer.
