hope this ain't a stupid question but I have just changed my oil and filter on my 1.6hdi 75 belingo. I had problems finding the place for the filter nipple. Am i correct in thinking the filter goes into the engine first with the filter nipple slotting in the hole in the engine block at about 7 o clock as you look at it, then the housing tightens up over the filter? Thanks again guys.
Hi Bernie yes you got it right don't worry.
Are we there yet????? No we fecking ain`t gggggrrrrrrr

LOL, I learned something. I have always been fitting the filter to the cap first and then inserting the whole thing until the nipple seats and then tighten further. Will try this next time.

Here's an informative article about the filter and in particular the 'nipple' and how it is vital to locate it correctly. I guess because the filter comes out attached to the housing many think it needs to go back in the same way, wrong! The nipple engages in a drain so that when the housing is removed only a small amount of old oil comes out:
