Poor build quality. Materials and welding technique created a very weak spot that engine oil pressure can break.

Just a crappy oil filter anyway. Read the reviews on filtration properties in the independent testing. Buy something better.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Given the confined location for getting my hand around the filter to tighten it I'm guessing that I did use a socket on it to tighten it. Given that I know from experience that spin filters can be a bastard to remove to service I do not tighten them very much at all. Also as MVs' have a locking band there is no need to tighten them very tight.

Thanks guys for all the information and now that it has all come out I do recall the threads against using them.
I will now be fitting an other brand of filter, a Purolator if I can find one here in Gippsland Victoria, Australia.

Use a proprietary filter wrench or pliers to remove a filter.

Don clean sticky rubber gloves to get a grip on the installation of a new filter...or use said filter pliers with caution against crushing.

You need to tighten the filter to spec in order to prevent leakage at pressure.

All that oil on that tire? Lucky man. Im surprised you were fortunate enough to stay rubber side down.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Had the same thing happen but caught it just in time. Save the broken filter and send it and any invoices to K&N, they paid for my oil change, reimbursed and replacement filters ( not K&N obviously) theyll also cover damage Im told.
