    It looks to me that it has been collapsed by pressure from the pump, due to the filter material being blocked.

    Either your oil was very contaminated or the filter is of poor quality.

    I once had an air filter (on a Mini) sucked in in the same way in wet weather when the filter medium became impervious due to the moisture, and actually stopped the engine.

    I had to remove it to get the engine running again. I suppose it is possible that your oil filter became blocked in a similar way due to being stored in a damp place.

    Thanks, I know the oil wasnít that dirty, about 3000 miles, Iím going to assume a lower quality filter. I have a 2003 Golf TDI with 260,000 miles and never had a problem. Thanks you

    That is down to the membrane media becoming blocked causing the filter to collapse in on itself. I suspect either low quality filter and/or wrong grade of oil used. You can see where the pleats of material have collapsed. Luckily for you, you have only done 3k so hopefully you wont of starved your engine of oil.

    Never mind the obvious waisting, look at the twisted writing, possible twist deformation due to inadequate lubrication of the matting faces as the cap is torqued down.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
