Default I Give Up. Where's Oil Filter on '04 Camry 4cyl?

Okay, I give up. Where's the oil filter on an '04 Camry 4cyl?

If, god forbid, you say I have to remove the splash shield, how do I
remove the plastic snaps, rivets or pins that appear to be holding the
rear center area, so they're reusable?

I crawled around under there, but I still can't find it.

When you say the "left" side I assume you mean the driver's side? Can
you tell me a position relative to the oil pan or transmission pan?
I assume it's forward of these? Between them? Nearer the driver's
side? Does it point straight down or is it on the side of the engine?

Found it. It's partially covered by the splash shield, but I was able
to get it out. Problem is it dumps some oil, and that gets on the top
side of the splash shield which either can't be cleaned or is hard to
clean. I gave it a lick and a promise and left it at that. I know to
put a rag up there next time.

By the way, it's on the passenger side, technically I think that's the
"right" side. For anyone else who's mystified by this, it's near the
rear edge of the splash shield, between the oil pan and the wheel.

By convention and to eliminate confusion, right and left are always as seen
from the back looking forward. As you see them from the drivers seat if you
like. If you are American then the passenger side is usually indeed on the
right. Over a good part of the rest of the world though, we drive on the
left of the road with the driver in the right side of the car. You probably
knew this but I have a few minutes to kill writing inane shit before bed and
some horizontal exercise. At least, I feel lucky. LOL

Point taken. But, we agree right and left are as seen by a person in
the drivers seat. And, in the US case the right is the passenger
side.
