Let sit for a day or two? So I have to buy 2 filters?
They are messy, plain and simple. I threw all 3 of them away, the one for my 2001 GMC, 2002 Trans Am and 99 Lumina. The two the leached oil had not been touched by me, they were they way they came. I fhave used these filter since they first came out but the last few years the quality has gone down the tubes. They are way overpriced for the type of material. Inever had any problems with the round type but the panel fitlers are the ones I am using. Another thing the one for my 2001 GMC is not a good fit, no matter how hard I try to get it to fit, I have to force it in the air box, the metal screen inside the form is about 1/8"+ too big all around. The distortion is evident in that it won't sit flat. I mentioned this the the tech staff but they showed no interest in the problem, just sent me another filter exactly the same. The filter I got for my Tran Am (TS83) was only about 1" thick and cost around $36, whereas the one in the truck (TS123) is over 2" thick and cost the same, gr 6 price codes.
They told me the filters submerged into the oil bath at the plant and then run thru a wringer to removed excess. Not working...
