Hi all. I was replacing the gearbox fluid today and the filter came apart in two pieces. Is this normal or is it broken? I was worried I lost the mesh half in the gearbox!

It is normally one piece...I would snap it back together and clean it real well and super glue the thing back together if you want to avoid down time or get a new one...Jason

Thanks again Jason!

I’ll play it safe and order a new one.

They do snap in half, but you can carefully snap them back together. Make sure the two halves fit together snug before reinstalling however. I clean them with a petroleum solvent first, usually Seafoam, then feel in the hole to see if there's any sludge or anything I can get out prior to reinstalling the filter.

For those interested they seemed to have moved the location of the gasket, presumably to make it easier to remove the filter.
