Bosch D3300 Oil Filter
I have a 2010 Forester 2.5 X and was due for an oil change. I got up early, went to the local parts store, and headed home to start the work. Once all the oil was drained and the old filter removed, I was ready to install the new Bosch filter. I lined it up and started to turn, and it wouldn't thread on. After several repeated attempts, I looked at the filter and it was stamped with 3/4-16 above the threaded hole...so the threads didn't line up! From what I remember reading on this forum, the threads on the stud are M20. I ended up walking back to the parts store to get a Mobil 1 filter and had no issues.
I wanted to mention this because at Advance Auto, this is listed as one of the replacement filters and I saw other posts on this forum where people had used it. So, I'm not sure if it was the wrong part in the box or a quality issue...either way, it wouldn't work!
I wasn't sure which forum this should be in, so feel free to move it to the correct spot.
