oil change

question regarding where the oil filter cartridge slides onto. When I unscrewed the plastic housing and pulled off the old filter I had a metal piece with a spring, come off with the cartridge. I have no idea why it came off with the old filter but when I reinstalled everything I was getting a low oil pressure warning. I went back and removed that 'extra' piece and oil pressure was back to normal. I am baffled and last oil change was over a year ago and do not remember that piece being an issue.

That is the oil pressure bypass valve. You need to replace your plastic filter housing as Porsche does not sell this separately.

You should consider going to the spin-on filter and adapter sold by our host.

I followed JFP and inaminit's advice and bought the spin-on filter adapter. Now it's just a napa filter when I need to change the oil.
