I didn't take a video, but this is video of someone (guy who sold me filter?) changing it, and explaining the steps. Below is my take on it all.
|Filter media, and small garbage bag|
The first order of business was getting the filter media. I truly didn't want such a big thing of single ply toilet paper, but it's what Walmart had when I stayed there last, on the way to Marfa, TX., which is where I currently am. I do not recommend using this on your derriere as I take no responsibility if you wind up with stinky finger... To prevent an oily finger, in my case, I used some nitrile gloves.
With gloves donned, loosened the clamp holding top part of the filter on. After removing clamp (sorry, no picture), lifted the stainless steel top up and out, but did so ever so slowly. It actually sounded kinda neat as there was a slight sucking sound as was pulling it up. Went somewhat slow as it's my first time, plus it sounded really neat!

For reference, the "dirty" oil comes in through the middle, and the "clean" oil goes out through the outside. There's holes down there that you can't see, trust me.. Really, trust me.. Would I ever knowingly lie?

Now it was just a matter of placing the filter in a bag (I chose plastic), and disposing of it properly.
I don't know much about Installing new filters like this, but it seemed really easy and simple. I did it somewhat slowly and carefully due to oil left in bottom, and it being my first time. Didn't want liquid to splatter all over the place prematurely as it would've been embarrasing.
|Tucked in snugly|
What I did first was to lay the toilet paper roll gently on top. When I did this noticed that it didn't really fit in perfectly, as paper is wont to have a mind of it's own. Because of this, had to tuck it in ever so slightly as seen in the picture.
After was tucked in, twisted it while gently pushing down. Did this in the hopes that most, if not all, of the oil in the bottom would be absorbed in the toilet paper. This worked to a large degree, but did have a little spillage around the edges, still not bad for a first time.

|Housing back on|
Last step of installing media is to put the clamp on and tighten it snugly. This is done and everything is nice and secure.
There are couple more steps in that need to run the engine and let oil flow through the media. For the initial install, I let it idle till engine was up to temperuture. After running the engine for at least couple minutes (my guess), turn it off and let sit. After it sits at least 10 minutes (I would wait 30 or so), check the oil and add as appropriate till up to level.
They say that it's about one quart of oil per filter that has to be replaced, so I'll probably wind up adding two quarts and that should top it off.
My initial thoughts on this is "how could it get so simple?" If didn't stop and take pictures, am sure would've been done in 5 minutes. As it is, it probably took me about 10-15, which isn't all that bad.
There are one or two small leaks I might have to address and will keep an eye on them. Noticed one leak that was coming from around the O-ring, and also noticed some excess oil on one of the T fittings I put together. Did have some oil leaking out of the oil sampling valve, but that was quickly fixed by loosening and tightening it a little more.
My next steps are to get some oil sampling test kits and send them in. Will post that too, and it'll give a good guide into health of engine as a whole.
