I've heard if this happening, but in 43 years this is the 1st time. Btw, why in the hell do they crank that freaking oil filter on so tight in the 1st place?!
Don't know that the filter is installed at Brampton, I'm guessing it's installed at Saltillo because they test the engines there before shipping to Brampton by train.
And although they're on there pretty tight, it seems they install the filters dry with no oil on the gasket and that's what gives you the most grief trying to get them loose. And the gasket almost glues itself to the mount, just like in the pic.
They might be ordered to do this by FCA as no way would a filter just come loose and as long as the dealer can get it off its no big deal.
I used a 93-15 filter cap wrench and came off fairly easy compared to what I was expecting. <img src="http://www.challengertalk.com/forums/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Good thing you checked otherwise you might have had a real problem on your hands. Had a coworker who changed his oil and did not check for the o-ring....long story short...his oil light came on, had a massive oil leak and almost ruined his engine.Found it!
