If I understand you correctly, the center tube that holds the paper filter must be in there.
I bought the metal housing that fix Lexus and FJ's. I had to swap the center tubes, as there were different sizes.
Worked great!
The TRD filters have their own metal center tube and the cheaper filters do not. You just drop the TRD filter in over the metal center tube on the filter housing.

I've been thinking about buying the metal housing as well, ~$30 on ebay.

Re: How To: 2011 Oil Change

This is the one I ordered.
The center piece was shorter than the FJ tube.
I just pulled it out and snapped the one from the stock plastic piece in there.
Now it doesn't feel like I'm going to break it every time I change the oil.

Re: How To: 2011 Oil Change

"front skid plate. It is held on with four 12 mm bolts" and "the oval shaped metal plate covering the engine oil pan and drain plug. It has two 12 mm bolts" Where can I buy these four 12 mm bolts & two 12 mm bolts? part number? since I literally broken all four bolts..

I believe the part number you are looking for is 90080-11373, and I *think* all 6 are the same. You can get them from any Toyota dealer but have them verify that it is the correct part number.

I order all of my OEM parts from https://parts.autonationtoyotasouthaustin.com/ and just pick them up since they are local.

nice writeup

haven't done the 1st oil change on the 2010 yet, but for some reason i thought the oil draining was all done through the plastic nozzle. did not know there was still the pan drain plug. now i hate this cartridge filter setup.
Sorry, I know this is an old thread. But I have to agree 100%. I just did the oil change on my 2013 FJ for the second or third time. And I also did my mom's 2012 Sequoia. They both have the stupid cartridge thing. Well, it's stupid on the bottom. I did an oil change on a 2009 Porsche 911. They use the same cartridge thing, but it's easily accessible via the rear lid for the engine. It's sitting right there, easy to get at, and doesn't leak everywhere. Toyota should take a hint. I also just changed the oil on a mercury outboard, and it had a normal style filter that's screw on/off and it was so much better. I miss those days.

To achieve anything, you must be prepared to dabble on the boundary of disaster.

Re: How To: 2011 Oil Change

Wow, just did my first since buying this a little over 9K miles ago. The Mercedes stealership did the last oil change. I needed a Cheater Bar to get the oil filter cap off, the wrench I bought at wally world is a POS that kept slipping off. All Skid plate bolts where freaking over tight as was the drain plug.

I think I know whats happening, the people today, lazy millennials, working on our vehicles now use the cordless impact wrenches for everything. when back in the day we used hand wrenches and had the proper feel for torque values.

Re: How To: 2011 Oil Change

Just gave my 2010 its 100,000 mile oil change. My, how times have changed. Used to be (back in the olden days ), a motor was usually pretty shot at 100K. Whereas this one still doesn't burn a drop that I can tell in 10,000 miles. Actually, the whole vehicle seems tight and new-ish (other than the new car smell being absent) after 9 years and 100K. Kudos, Toyota.
