When you guys are saying 'front'. Are you referring to the actual front of the vehicle, or the theoretical front of the engine where the belts are?
The patriot's engine is tranverse mounted so the front of the engine is technically on the passenger side. In the case of the oil filter we are refering to the front of the patriot itself.
The oil pan hangs down quite a bit lower than the filter so youll have to get underneith the patriot and look up thru the hole to see it.
Hope this helps.
