Wife's 2017 Jeep Renegade finally got to 3K miles last week and decided to do an oil/filter change on the factory fill. Removed the factory installed Purolator made MOPAR 04892339AA oil filter and found the media torn or what really looks like a bad crimp on the two halves. Either way, Purolator cannot even get the OEM filters right. I am totally done with Purolator and their junk. That company really needs to get their head out of their rear end.

+1. Purolator does not have it together. It is unacceptable. Sorry it happened to you.

Ouch. "Factory Installed" ... maybe Jeep would like to know about it. This failure looks like the seam wasn't sealed up right, not a media tear failure.

Yeah, I am leaning on a improper crimp here also. I will call my dealership service adviser tomorrow that I am tight with and see what he says. Not expecting much as I am sure the Catch 22 of me opening it first will play into deniability or taking responsibility.

Wow. I wonder how many of my past Purolators did this. Glad I have moved on

All manufacturers can have assembly mistakes once in awhile. Move along, nothing more to see here. Or something to that effect. FC should see this and cancel the contract with M&H. It isn't enough to be friends from Europe.

Sorry, Hoot. That sucks. What sucks more is that purolator doesn’t give a “S” about it

my question is which factory installs the oil filter?
is it the engine plant? (in this case either Dundee Mi, Trenton Mi, or Saltillo Mex)
or the assembly plant (Melfi, Italy)

if it's the Assembly Plant, one would think they would source a european made filter, instead of shipping them across the Atlantic. granted they are already shipping the engines to Italy and back...

I'd put money on it being the engine plant.

Every engine build video I've ever seen shows the filter on the engine, and every OEM engine I've gotten from the dealer has had a filter pre-installed as well.
