oil filter O-ring
07/01/19 at 06:42:17
 
I am new member and just purchased an almost new 2015 S4! I read somewhere that there is a small O-ring on the opening side of the filter ( An O'Reilly's #114) My bike did not have this and new filter did not come with it, should I get that O-ring?
Please advice.

Yes, without that O-ring some oil will slip by unfiltered.

Be very careful about which direction you install the filter - installing it backwards blocks the flow and will break the filter cover the first time you rev the engine (and no oil flow can do a lot of damage elsewhere in the engine).

Thanks you Dave,
Is it normal that new filters come without O-ring?

Dunno.......not sure who made the one you bought.

A used O-ring is better than none at all......and the large O-ring on the cover works for years - I only replace mine when it gets stiff and flattened.
