Contacted Nick at JleviSW (sensational guy who provides sensational service), who asked me to check if the spring loaded rod is stuck and not deploying to hold the aFe filter in place.

Haven't had a chance to try this yet and wanted to know if anyone else here had experienced the same problem

PS.....I live in Aust. and am wondering if this is a Country/Model specific issue????

Thanks in advance..........
Mine fit perfectly. Considering the filters are the same size there should not be a problem. Sounds like your spring rod is stuck
