It screws into the top I think, so unscrew the bottom and take it out (if I recall correctly, it's not terribly complicated).

I took mine out right after I put it on because I spaced on it until I was done the install.

If you take the filter out then how does the catch can extract the oil from the vapors? Wouldn't that negate the whole purpose?

The oil falls out because it is heavier, just look at mine. If you leave the filter in it will get clogged and the oil will not be able to make it's way into the jar and you will not longer be filtering anything.

thats what i was thinking at first

another thing is i posted up on another forum, they all were bashing saying that i didnt need to do this cause my car is stock

this is what they wrote
"First off, a oil catch can is to catch oil that may be contributed by blow by (mainly from high hp cars or turbo cars) Blow by ruins the air fuel mixture and can lower the octane level of your gasoline, thus making your car detonate.

A stock d series motor does not need an oil catch can. The stock PCV is perfect enough for it."

Those filters are for filtering air in regulated compressed air systems, not for filtering fluids. They saturate with fluids so quickly you would eventually negate the purpose of the catch can since oil would be blowing straight through the filter.

I still need to install one...

ah let them think that. to a degree they are right. the higher hp motors especially turbo motors need a catch can more than the stock d. the effects on a turbo motor are much greater. which means buying a more expensive catch can would be justified.

however there are still benefits to having one on any car, so the $10 filter works just fine for the d. so my advice: let the morons have the thread. they have obviously never cracked open a d-series intake manifold and seen the tar from the pcv system. there is no need to fight with them since experience has much more leverage in changing someones mind than some guy online. just let them figure it out the hard way.

what everyone is saying about the filter is true, its too dense. steal wool would be idea for allowing the oil vapors to condense and probably the most effective "filtering" media, even though it technically doesnt filter.

Okay, I'll go ahead and take the filter out tonight. Would it be beneficial to add a bit of steel wool in there?

the more oil vapor that condenses, the less goes into the intake manifold.
