'17 V6 oil change question

On the 2017 V6, after detaching the filter from the housing, you can't get the housing past the differential below it, without turning it sideways and dumping the remaining oil downwards. I noticed a fairly large pathway to the filter/housing along the left side of the engine but am not sure that I could reach the filter while underneath. Has anyone changed the filter that way or found another way on the 17s to remove the housing without having to turn it sideways?

Also, separately, in looking at an oil/filter change procedure on the Cayenne V6 3.6L- setup including differential pipe looks the same- the video made a specific point of saying that the filter housing cap should have a spring in the middle and if it doesn't you should get a new cap or you may end up with a problem. Does anyone know if the filter housing cap on the 7P V6 Touareg should have a spring in the middle, and what the purpose of the spring is?
