  1. OK maybe panicked too early 😁 yes I grabbed the old filter from the bin and checked that part fits. Removed new filter, cleaned up everything and stuck it back together. Thanks Loren for the fast reply.
  2. So was just finishing up an oil change in my 2004 cayenne turbo, (have done this 4-5 times before with no issues) and was putting the used oil into bottles for recycling when I found this important looking thing at the bottom of the pan!

Apart from a plastic coolant connector splitting, everything went pretty well - until I realised there was a random loose vacuum line hanging around behind the alternator - and I can't for the life of me figure out where it's meant to plug into!
