Hi, I did my first DIY oil change on my LC200 2009 this past weekend so wanted to post a question in this thread vs. starting a new one. Before I put the skid plate back on I wanted to post a pic of my (stock) filter cap and retaining clip post oil change... Does the retaining clip look correct? I ask because the design of the clip is different from other models I saw in some of the videos and it didn't seem to want to come off and I didn't want to force it. But, the filter cap came off and went back on without issue with the special tool and is torqued correctly. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

That's not a stock oil filter housing. FYI.

Thanks. That explains why the retainer clip does not match a lot of videos I saw.
I do believe it is factory toyota, and a very common upgrade over the plastic original part, but technically not the stock part.
