True, but when you are snaking your hand in past steering pumps and racks, hoses, exhaust manifolds, whatever, it can be difficult to hold onto the sandpaper at the same time you are trying to find the filter by feel in cars such as the 164, and even the Milano.

BTW, using the small 24V engine filter makes it easy to install or pull the Milano filter past things without having to remove anything. Down it goes, and up it comes. Simple compared to the 164, esp the later 24v version.

I may just glue a strip of such sandpaper onto the new filter before installing it. Will come in handy when properly installing the filter hand tight.
