    Default Oil Filter - have I bought a rubbish one?

    Hi all, have been reading this forum loads, and have noticed some threads mentioning oil problems not helped by using rubbish non-gm oil filters.. Ive bought a new paper oil filter from Vauxhall World Parts for my 2.2 direct, its come in an orange box with ACP 463 and HU69/2X written on it.. No GM markings on it at all. VWP say on their site they supply GM approved parts, is this filter going to be ok, or should I really go to vx dealer and buy another one. thnx.

    Does the orange box say Fram on it? as they are the only ones I can think of that come in orange boxes for filters.

    HU69/2X is a mann & hummell (sp) part number who supplies filters to the manufacturers.

    Consider it as an after-market part and half the oil change interval (from OE spec), all will be fine

    Hi, no, other than ACP the box has no name on it, the label stuck on the box has ACP 463 then underneath HU69/2X .. On the filter itself it has ACP463 150109 marked on it ..
