Do not lose or damage this O-ring. Remove the two O-rings from the filter cap with an O-ring pick and inspect them. Replace them if there is any damage or signs of wear. 4 5. Lightly grease the O-rings and install them into their respective locations on the filter plate adapter as shown below. 6. Insert the filter plate adapter carefully into the filter housing to prevent damage to the O- rings. 7. Install the bolts for the filter plate adapter.

The top rear bolt hole of the filter adapter will now use one of the short 6x20mm bolts removed from the beauty cover.
