    RXP oil filter upgrade ?

    I have a 04 RXP. Does anyone make a after market oil filter setup.I don't know why they just didn't do a spin on filter.The cap is always a pain in the ass to get out. I thought I read somewhere that the newer models came with a cap that came off as you loosen the bolt. Has anyone ever heard that?

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Yes, not sure on part numbers. I use a trick Shibby posted on here. Remove the long bolt that goes down the center of the oil filter, place it in the oil filter cap hole at an angle and pry it out at an angle. Works every time.

    I read somewhere on here that you can order the new filter caps that back themselves out and they fit the older models.

    Here is the link from Shibby about it...

    Thanks, I will have to get one from my dealer.I always hated the way they designed that oil filter. Like I said above I wish they would have just went with a spin on filter.

    They usually come off easy.

    You must order in the OEM parts store, from the "RXT IS" the red marked things on the picture, i do that on my 04 RXP and it works great...!!!
