    4-Tec oil filter cap question

    Hi Guys,

    Quick question about the oil filter cap on my RXP, in the image below I have the cap pushed down as far as it goes with the screw that holds it in place tightened up. Is the top o-ring supposed to be visible like it is in the picture below?

    Cheers

    Earlier ones without the o-ring would get water in them and corrode them making them hard to get off

    and if you update to the 08 or newer the center bolt when loosen pops the cap off
    and is your cap metal or plastic if plastic update asap

    Cheers for the answers guys! I was changing the oil like i have done many times and its one of those things you never really pay attention to but when you notice it, all of a sudden it doesn't look right!

    It's that third beer that makes it look different.
