1971 BMW 2002 Spin on Oil Filter Housing.

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Euro version 2002 that still has the canister style oil filter.  I'm looking for a housing that will fit the more common spin on filters.  Also in one post I did see a filter numbered 11.41-1 256 260 that may fit the canister but I have not been able to locate this part.  If someone has information on the correct filter it would be appreciated.

The filter housing you have is part # 11421250840 , it uses filter part # 11421256260. You can still get those filters, but they are older technology and a lot messier to change/clean.


The later filter head is part # 11421289128 , it uses filter part # 11421258039. This is the newer spin on filter, that is easier to find and not as messy.


I have a couple of the later spin on style filter heads that you want that I would trade you for the old style one or sell you. Message me for pictures if interested.
