There's a thread on here where supposedly the factory admitted the FR1 filter only went down to 45 microns.

I'll see if I can find that thread.

Course, I can't find it. I still would have replaced the whole housing, the cap kept unscrewing itself.

Is it on the right side or the left side of you or is it right in front?

If on the left or in front then yes.
