No protective cover for my oil filter

Recommended Posts

I did my first oil change the other day and noticed I didn't have the protective cover that one has to remove to access the oil filter.


I'm assuming the original owner probably had his car serviced at a shop and the shop just got lazy and never put it back on.


My 2000 Subaru Legacy never had the cover either. At the time I bought the car I was living in an apartment so I also went to the shop to get the oil changed. Not sure if the 2000 model ever came with a protective cover though


Not sure if the cover is "protecting" anything much though. I prefer it not being there anyways

I removed mine from my 00'GT and the one on my 05 GT is only half there anyway's.


OH I took off my engine cover two weeks after I got my 05GT late June 04. It's been in the shed since then.
