Is the carburetor like a Honda carb? Did you take the plastic screw out that controls minimum idle before you pried the top plastic plug out to clean it? Did you screw the screw all the way in instead of where it was when before you took it apart?

The Fram end caps in question here are not cardboard. They are a fiber that easily absorbs adhesive, which allows the filter media and end caps to bond and become one piece. There is nothing dangerous about those end caps. Any negative stigma is in p

Thanks for the info! I also just found out that I have a bunch of filters for the Civic and Versa that should fit also. They are the Fram XG7317, Mann ML-1008 & Carquest R84356. Looks like they are about an inch longer and I have the room.

Looks like its broke pretty deep in there, are you able to slide the bushing inboard enough to clear it? Why don't you remove the top bolt to pull the caliper, then vise grips to remove the stuck fasterner (after general penetrating oil and time)?

Looking at your picture again the location perhaps isn't so bad. I was thinking of MY calipers, which might be impossible if this happened.

Im not sure if id say they are the BEST overall, but they do make an excellent filter in the ULTRA. Ive been using it for a couple of years now with no issues on both cars without hesitation.
