Looks different that piece was on my filter housing can you snap a pic of the actual housing so I can see cause I believe you are supposed to remove that there is a rubber circle o-ring that leaks as well. Mine stayed with the housing and installed together

Right that's what I'm saying, all of the pictures and guides I was reading were geared towards the m44, where that bush / valve is plastic and not attached. On the m42 pictures I've been looking at after the fact, it's just the o ring that get replaced. You have an M42? Mines 1995

Yea got a 1995 as well m42 but yea I believe that thing pulled away from the housing see if you can pull it out of the block instead of installing. Because that should just be a hole then on housing it will push into the block with a o-ring to seal it into the hole

Wink I should have search BEFORE spending all Saturday haha

Looking on Real OEM there were two options for the M42, those with the aluminum housing cover and those with the plastic. The aluminum housing (which I have) does not have a bushing, just the O-ring. The plastic housing has a bushing, so the part I ordered is technically correct for an M42, just not for the M42 that I have. #WrenchLife!

Anyone have the link to the OP’s DIY? Is there a kit with all gaskets and o rings or do I have to get them individually?

Clicking on the link in the 1st post will download a pdf, that you then have to open. There's one gasket and two o rings. You can get the parts from any of the online retailers, I see that bavauto.com sells the bushing with o rings already installed and the gasket, total of $12 and change. Last time I did this, I was shocked to find the two o rings and the gasket at my local napa, took them one day to get it and cheap.

My apologies. I was trying to view in the Tapatalk app. I switched to web and the link works. I’m not very good at this internet thing. Thanks for the help!!
