The terms "cartridge" and "canister" can be confusing, as us old-timers tend to use those terms interchangeably for the raw element type filter (that was extremely common before the late 60s)
It is more clear to use the therm "spin-on" to refer to the type with a metal housing.

But seriously... before buying a part from the dealer, roll under your car and confirm what is needed so you don't risk a return trip at an inconvenient time.

Cartridge are housed within other containers, think bullet in a gun, ink in a printer. Cannister suggest an outside shrouding material. I had pondered using "spin-on", I'm certainly familiar with the term. But it begs the question of what to call a cartridge filter. "Non-spin-on" seems poor, referring to something by what is is not. Maybe "paper filter".

I've rarely gotten the wrong parts from dealers and suppliers. I've rebuilt over a dozen engines, done a similar number of brake jobs, numerous oil changes. Maybe I'm lucky.

That said, I did crawl under May, my new Limited. I was able to confirm the 90915 portion of the part number, the remainder was occluded and unavailable until removal. Can you check that part for us?

The complete part number, that the dealer sold me, is 90915-YZZM1 I post this because I can't open my posted image, a problem I've had with other's posts as well.
