Clicking Fuel Filter !!

I just ordered a new Bosch fuel filter for a 1990 100.  As I was about
to put it in, i noticed
that it clicks when I shake it.  The plastic element on the inlet side
actually moves about
1.5 mm when shaken.

Suspecting a bad element during assembly,  I decided to be cautious and
ordered another
filter.  (Rather spend another $15.00 than risk the entire injection
system).  Well the new
one is the same.  They also seem lighter that the older one but this
might be due to
the old one being full of gasoline.

If anybody has a new Bosch filter can you please check if it too clicks
and email me.
Maybe Bosch has changed their filter element inside.  Thanks.
