    Default 1.8 Oil filter advice needed.

    I have a Vectra 1.8 Design 2005 facelift model. I bought oil, oil filter etc to service the car and they gave me a paper filter. When I went to do the work I realised I had a "spin on can"! I went back to the shop and he assured me that I had a paper filter and that spin on cans were used in early Vectra B 1.8's with the 115 BHP Ecotec engine.
    I went home thinking I was mad, had a look under the bonnet and I definatly have a spin on filter! And my engine says Ecotec on the top!

    Can anyone advise me on this please?

    Thanks in advance. Matt.

    Mine is at the front of the engine, to the right of the exhaust as you look from the front of the car (like the old 1.3 Astra engines), and not to the side of the sump like on the old 1.6/1.8 Cavy engines!
    Would it be a paper type inside the can? It looks like the sort you would put a screwdriver through the side to remove it!
