2001 SLK230 Oil Filter Question

I have a 2001 SLK230 Roadster with a 6 speed transmission. I looked at the forum archives and found info about changing the oil filter on this car. When I went to change the filter it did not have all the o rings that were discussed. I have posted pictures of my filter and the bottom of my oil filter chamber. Is mine different for some reason?

Hello brother Mountaineer! I think you have the same engine as a 2001 Chrysler Crossfire. Check with your local Chrysler dealer to see if they have the O-rings or filter you need. Good luck and welcome to the forum.

This kind of in-line filter kit should come with a plastic bag that contains the required O-rings. If you don't have the O-rings then
1. The bag of O-rings fell off the box.
2. Someone took the bag of O-rings from the filter kit box at the store.
3. The brand of the filter that you bought did not include the O-rings. You got to buy them separately.

Look here, some pictures show the O-rings, some don't.
