This is why always open boxes that are openable to check before I buy. If it's shrink-wrapped or glued, I obviously don't, but otherwise, trust but verify.
Yep, good point. As I noted recently on new Fram CAF thread, I saw ST AF and CAF boxes stocked for first time at local WM. Unfortunately WM seals all the boxed with a serrated pull strip. To look/inspect on must pull the strip to open the box, so no longer sealed. Can't be restored to original.

As I mentioned in the other thread. I wouldn't buy without looking at the filter, but I also unlikely I'd pull zip strip just to inspect. To use an old expression, kind of Catch22.

Can't open box in store . Sealed with a pull tab . This is for an 2nd generation FIT ( applies to 3rd as well ) . Original is in car . FRAM Freeze Breeze CF11182 is in pics . CF11182 exact fit as O.E.M..

More pics . Replaced O.E.M. with the used ( 1 year ? ) FRAM11182 until purchase of a new O.E.M.. The FRAM lessens air flow due to its thickness .
