    Angry fiat 500 Abarth oil filter retainer clip

    Folks,
    Where do I find a replacement oil filter retainer clip?
    The original plastic one is broken.
    I had to replace the oil cap last year due to a hairline crack.
    Annoying that they use molded plastic engine parts to save money.
    Thanks!

    Are you talking about the bypass valve that is located in the bottom of the filter cap? Doesn't the original one come with the bypass valve? I checked an aftermarket one and looks like the Dorman 921-160 replacement cap also comes with the bypass valve.

    Don't want to be a bearer of bad news, but this is not something you want to fool around with. I would get a new cap from Fiat, with the clip. The consequences of getting this wrong would be severe.

    Right.
    I replaced my cracked cap with an aluminum one, but it did not have the bypass valve.
    When I went to pop it out to install it in my new aluminum filter cap, the cheap plastic tabs cracked.
    Thank you for the response.

    Did you use a socket to take the plastic filter housing off? A six point socket would be best to keep from damaging it. Is the aluminum part from Fiat? Again, I would be careful with any subsitute parts regarding the oil system. By the way, one good thing about the plastic cap is it will not crossthread the block. You want to be VERY careful with an aluminum cap that it doesn't damage the threads in the block. This would be VERY expensive! I would recommend just getting an OEM oil cap. It can't be that expensive.

    The aluminum oil filter cap is an interesting alternative. Regrettably, I don't see the bypass valve as a separate part. However, the factory oil filter cap isn't that expensive. I jumped online and found it from one of the popular online dealers.

    Cap-Oil Filter Housing - Alfa Romeo (4892850AA)
    Genuine Alfa Romeo Cap-Oil Filter Housing - Alfa Romeo (4892850AA)
    List Price: $41.10
    You Save: $12.80 (31.10% off)
    Sale Price: $28.30

    That's one of the reasons I never went for the aluminum. I was thinking about having a spare one, but after 9 years, mine is in perfect shape. However, I don't have anyone change it, and that's probably why. If I brought my car to someone, having a spare one for around $30 wouldn't be a bad idea.

    And NOT overtightening the plastic cap is one of the secrets to long life. I understand the proper torque is cast in the cap (18 ft/lbs). I would suspect the O ring negates that "extra" torque we as mechanical males like to add just to make sure wheels, oil drain plugs, and oil filter caps among other things never inadvertently come loose.

    Been there, done that; all I got was a bigger repair bill!

    I had taken my car to a local oil change facility and I think
    they overtightened the cap which caused the hairline crack.
    The shop has gone out of business during covid.
    Yes, I used a socket when I decided to change my oil.
    New OEM cap is on the way. It has the bypass valve inside it.
    @ commonsense.
    Good point about cross-threading.
    Thanks!

    That's the typical thing. The guys before you demolish the drain plug or cap and then when it's your turn you get stuck dealing with the aftermath. Good luck.
