It simply sits in the well, and the cap holds it in place. But a not so dumb thing to look at is whether the rubber base pad from the old filter is still on the filter (where it should be) or stuck to the engine case (where it will interfere with the installation of the cover). Take a look.

Hey thanks man. I checked for the rubber washer and it WAS stuck on the engine case, I took that out and the new one fit a lot better. why would it stick ? was it melting to the case?:smirk:

nah. it happens a lot. nothing to worry about. just be sure to check for that every time you change the filter.
