This came off a 2002 grand caravan with 247000 Km on the clock. Filter was in service for 14 months and 11250 Km. Lots of carbon but no metal or other foreign chunks.

Did you have your pet wolverine open it up for you smile ?

It does look really good. I hope that you didn't hurt yourself doing this. Thank you for your work here.

I cut it open with a small cutter meant for electrical wires. It chews up the filters nicely. It's a bit slow but a labor of love.

Looks pristine!


I urge people not to wait 100K to change out the fluid in their transfer case units. -Kestas

If you have a spare 38 clams, this filter cutter lined above is a beast and opens anything in about two seconds cleanly...

Thanks again for the cut and post

Looks like your oil can cutter needs a new blade.
