2007 F250 Oil filter cap doesn't fit

I just changed the oil for the first time on a friend's 2007 F250. The cap is a lot taller than the one in my 06, and it doesn't push the filter down in the housing like it should. It also does not have the area in the top that the filter snaps in to. I'm using an OEM Motorcraft FL-2016 filter.

I had a hell of a time getting the old filter out of the cap, so I was wondering if anybody knew if there was some aftermarket filter that you change both the cap and the filter at the same time. I actually had to cut the filter apart to get it free of the cap.

On a related note, does anyone know the part number for the OEM oil filter cap and anywhere that might stock one on a weekend?

After much searching online to make sure they didn't change anything on the 07s, I found out what it was. It was some POS Carquest aftermarket filter. The cap was part of the filter and designed to just be thrown away. It didn't even have gaskets on it. I hate aftermarket filters.

He's gonna try to get a factory cap tomorrow. I found a dealer that's open on saturday in the parts dept. I just hope they have it in stock.

Tech- Was going to say, some aftermarket POS filters have the cap built into them as a throwaway deal. Hence the heck of a time getting it out. Just think... the idiot that put that aftermarket filter on threw away a nice OEM filter cap.
