Oil filter mount thread stuck in housing


Hey team,

Performing my first oil change on a non-japanese car. Have had it done professionally since owning the vehicle, but was sick of overpaying. Got a kit from Harry's delivered, seems all good.

Well the existing oil filter was extremely tough to remove, and has left behind the built-in mounting thread. So my new oil filter can't fit, until I remove either the same piece from my new filter, or the old piece from the oil filter housing on the engine itself - at least this is what I can make of it.

Wondering if anyone has had any experience with this here and can offer advice?

Pretty sure I had something weird like this happen when I did my scirocco. Repost this to the Facebook group and I'm sure somebody will know if you haven't got it sorted already.

Just grab it with some multi grips and unscrew it. It happens every know and then. No Biggy
