Question Oil Filter Cap inside destroyed! 07 6.0L PSD

I changed my oil today, this time myself. I noticed that the one who did the oil change last (wally-world) must have over tightened the oil filter cap and destroyed the plastic innards. I removed all the plastic fragments and put the new filter in with the cap minus the plastic piece. Do you think that it will be ok like this. As far as I can tell this plastic ring's purpose was to snap the filter into the cap, not really a necessity as far as I can tell. Any ideas?

Go anywhere else but Walmart. A friend of mine managed a Walmart Tire Lube Express for over 5 years, and I've heard too many horror stories from him. His employees managed to destroy an average of 10 engines a year by forgetting to put the drain plug in, forgetting to put oil in, not tightening the plug, stripping the plug, putting the wrong oil in... You name it. They have a huge turnover rate and poorly trained employees.

You're playing Russian Roulette with a 14k engine at Walmart.

My wife works at a Wally~World and she would agree. Great place to pick up name brand items for a decent price....not a good place for any kind of service.

I found a billet replacement oil filter cap from DJ I plan to order this week. From now on I will do my own oil changes. It's the same way with having it washed as well. IF you want it done right ..... Thanks guys.
