Hi All,
The Mann Filter W811/83 is the one I use on the Ti, its the shortest one I've found and is far easier to fit.
This is the one for me, from my local Motor Factor
Regards
Alan

Thanks for everyones thoughts and suggestions! I've ordered a Mahle OC139 as suggested by Benc from DIYCARSERVICEPARTS.CO.UK for £7.99 inc p&P.
Will report back as to how it fits. Hope I wont need to do any dismantling Geoff!

Ron

or just hammer a screw driver through it to start it turning.
tried that once and ended up with oil everywhere and the filter still fixed to block :-(

the chain option will probably work better than the strap as I guess the lumpy bits on chain 'dig in ?

I have had to use the screwdriver on a number of cars when ell else has failed - yes it is messy but sometimes needs must. Sometimes a screwdriver on the edge of the filter ( next to the block ) will turn it

THe Mahle OC39 fitted OK. Still a real fiddle to fit it from above but at least possible!
