    Oil filter and joint questions....

    Hello all,

    I need to replace the oil filter of my dodge charger RT 2007. I cant find it in retail store here in France. I must order it online. But ebay shows me several ones that dont look the same to me (different size). What is the exact size of the one that fits my car ? And above all, shall I replace its joint ? If so, what size is it and how is it called in English ? Thank you all.

    The "correct" filter would be a Mopar 05281090AB or equivalent.

    My advice would be to use a Motorcraft FL1A or equivalent, such as the Baldwin B2, ACDelco PFL1A, or Wix 51515. The Motorcraft is larger than the Mopar filter, but will fit just fine and give you slightly more oil capacity.

    The FL1A is one of the most common oil filters in the U.S., and it should be available locally, even in Europe.

    Joint = gasket? If so, it's part of the new filter and the old one should come off with the old filter but always double check that it does. Then wipe down the filter gasket area to make a nice surface to seal for the new filter and put a little clean oil on the new filter gasket before installing.

    The Audi-VW 068115561B might be easier to find in France.

    Thank you all. I checked rockauto.com and entered dodge charger rt 2007. They list few models but none of the ones you guys mentioned. Here's the link, please let me know if their filters make sense.

    Any of those filters should be fine. There are dozens, if not hundreds of cross-references for the Mopar 05281090AB.

    I suggested the Motorcraft FL1A because I prefer it to the Mopar filters, as it's larger and offers greater oil capacity, and also because it's been very popular in the U.S. for many, many years. If you have to shop for an "American" oil filter outside of the U.S., it should be relatively easy to find.

    But if you're using RockAuto, you have lots of choices. If you don't want to go with an oversized filter, the Motorcraft FL300 and the Wix 51085 are good, solid choices.

    I have 275/40 on the back of my 06 Magnum. Seems like a kinda close fit.

    Not necesarily with stock rims. My main goal is to have very wide tires on the rear.

    I have 295 on Viper Replicas. Could have fit 305 if it wasnt lowered. You'll probably need to roll the fender lip.
