AAAhhh.. My fault... Kinda... It might be the same item I am thinking about but I didn't pull up an 04, which is different than my 01... Yours is flipped over so the filter comes out the bottom unlike mine that has a cap and filter lifts out of the canister... Did you happen to see a small spring in there too? You may not since yours might be pressure operated... I can pull my filter without draining my oil and see what I see... I'll post pics after Church...


Have a blessed Sunday all!!
