Got in contact with CVT Parts Limited, they have a complete filter w/gasket set and will ship worldwide (sku: NCVT15OSK01). With shipping to the US it is ~$100 but this could be a real option for people who can't get the right parts from their dealer!
That's more than the dealer wants here in canuckstan bucks. I'm pretty sure the filters are under $30 a piece which is still crazy for what you get. Need someone to do a bulk buy from alibaba.
For internal/external, gasket, and o-rings @ a change frequency of 60k for all of those. $100 isn't too bad. That is less than 1 cent per a mile maintenance cost. Now if it was $100 just for the external filter and o-ring @ a 30k change frequency that would be a different story.
Their site lists just the external filter for ~$8. Shipping probably doubles it but it does look like a good quality part.
What we really need is someone to make an adapter so that a spin-on transmission filter can be utilized. If oriented correctly, spin off the filter, fill the new one with new fluid, spin the new one on. We have any engineers with spare time on this site? lol
The one in the pan won't get plugged easily unless there are chunks oh transmission floating around. In that case you're screwed anyways. It's just a metal screen, more like a strainer. It might not be a terrible idea to at least change the little cartridge one on the side. It's relatively relatively easy to change. It's just paper and will collect little pieces of crap.
Can't remember #'s. There around here somewhere. Dealer can get filters but they are retards usually and will sometimes argue that these cars don't have filters. Chevy spark uses the same cartridge filter if I recall correctly https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...ic,filter,8600
