I'm sure it's just like the V6 version, the lid has a giant tapered plastic 
spike on it, like a plastic tent stake. I forget how many o-rings are on that 
spike, but you'll use most if not all that come with the filter.


The biggest one goes on the cap to keep the oil inside the engine, one or two 
littlest ones seal the bottom of the spike like the o-ring on a OM617 filter 
rod, the mid sized ones go more or less where the filter ends are.


Make note where the old filter is on the spike, lube up the new one and make 
sure it's shoved in as much as the old one was.

They are to replace the 2 o rings that are on the stem the filter sits on.

He’s dead, Jim.

But I believe his cat is still alive.  Probably driving his cars, too:

Thanks!

Never having used one of these before, I figured I would ask in case the little 
card with the graphics they pack with it didn’t make sense.

It definitely makes a point of identifying how far up the spike the filter 
should go.  I did notice that when I looked at it.

There are 2 black lines on the filter, you have to make sure it's inserted to 
where the 1st line is covered
