Help with oil pan

So...Long story short I hit something under my car and cracked the oil pan on my 2015 honda fit LX. Went to the dealership and was told I would be charged 1k for it. Said fuck that so I bought the part and switched them out with my partner. Now after getting everything hooked back up, I go to screw on the oil filter and I see this.

First image is the newly installed one. Second image is the old one. The new one is missing something, and I cant seem to find a way to get the old one out without stripping the threads. I don't see anything on the parts website that shows a part for that. There was nothing else in the package I got with the new oil pan. Anyone have any ideas?

What if you had two nuts that fit and lock them on? May be able to remove that piece without damaging threads then?

I would use an internal pipe wrench to spin that adapter piece off.
Shop Superior Tool 1/2-in Pipe Adjustable Wrench at

if the old oil pan is off the car, take a propane torch and heat up the aluminum pan to help that insert be removed easily.

I also recommend the double nut method.

Tho' if you saved enough money by avoiding the dealership, you would still come out ahead buying a new adapter (#8).

You MIGHT even be able to find an adapter at an autoparts store. (Bring an oil filter and old pan to assure everything fits, both thread size and thread DEPTH)

How long did it take you to swap the pan?

From, it's a $3.59 part (before shipping) - 90015-PH1-013

Just buy a new one and screw it in. It shows up on the diagram for 'Oil Pump - Oil Strainer' in the 'Engine' category.

Another approach to removing the old one that might work would be to turn it with a cold chisel and a hammer from the inside of the old oil pan by striking it at a diagonal angle along the side. Two nuts jammed together would be preferable.

Heating it up with a torch before attempting removal might help, too. Obviously you don't want to go too far overboard and melt stuff or start a fire.

For a $3.59 part, it's probably not worth spending too much effort diddling around with the old one unless time is of the essence!

No ,new oil pans do not come with the filter nipple. I would buy a new one from Honda along with the gasket o-rings for the dip stick tube , crank sensor and internal oil passage o-ring and use Honda Bond HT, works alot baetter than RTV. If you used RTV change your next filter2 early as any excess RTV will from silicone boggers that will clog your filter. The 2 nut method will work but Honda Bond or lock tite it in place so it does not come of when you pull the filter.

I had the same issue when I replaced my oil pan. I bought two nuts from Fastenal, and did the double nut as others suggested. I brought the damaged pan to them, and do not have the thread size on hand..
