2.5tdi oil filter in a 1.9td?

Evening all,

I appear to have bought the wrong oil filter. D'oh.

Will a 2.5tdi filter fit on a 1.9td? It appears to be the same diameter, just deeper?

Anyone? :confused:

Guess I should take it back then!

dunno mate but mine had a HUGE fram one fitted when I got it. When i did a service i used all gen VW parts and the gen VW one was tiny compared to the fram one.

If i remember correctly a bigger filter is better but don't quote me on that.
