Filter specified in manual: 15208AA160
Filter previously supplied by dealer: 15208AA160
Filter used by dealer today: 15208AA15A

160 is a Tokyo Roki filter and 15A is a Honeywell filter. I'm not too sure how the two may otherwise be different.

Now the question is, if the 15A filter fits, can I just leave it in until the next time I change the oil? Or should I return to the dealer and request they replace it with the 160?

Thanks in advance for weighing in on this.
Changed my oil yesterday. I had to go to two dealerships to get the filter and crush washer. The first dealership said they were "out of filters." Craziness. The second dealership gave me a 15208AA160, so at least some dealers still have the old filters.
