Hi,

I noticed on your video of the Mercedes c300 that there is a plastic ring on top of the oil filter. My GLC 300 has the same ring. The replacement oil filter does not have that ring. What should I do with the ring?

Hi Steve,

Put the existing plastic ring on the new filter and you will be good to go.

Thank you for visiting 2CarPros and have a great rest of your day!

It is attached to the long tube sticking out of the other side push the whole thing though the filter.

Please let us know what you find so it will help others.

Best, Ken
