Cut this one open. It was on a 2004 Silverado 5.3 for 5000 miles. Everything is as it should be, the folds in the media are securely attached to the caps, both top and bottom. Seam is glued nice and tight. Lots of media in the filter. Nothing broken here, and I currently have another PL25288 on the truck now. Will open it up when it comes off the truck this fall.
