Save your receipts (oil, filter). I just changed mine for the first time, and decided to use all VW OEM parts: oil, filter, and drain plug crush washer. I wrote it up like a shop would, including tag, date, mileage and VIN, listing part numbers, noted particles and 3 metal shavings found in filter inspection. I ordered the parts from ECS Tuning.im just now coming up on my first oil change (this last year i have hardly driven my Arteon), how does me changing my oil myself effect the warranty if anything happens? can the dealership come back saying since i have no record of an oil change potential warranty work will not be covered?
I have an oil sucker, but chose to get under the car for inspection purposes this time.Nice write-up, but you could literally cut 2/3 of your post out if you just sucked the oil out of the dipstick tube, topside...which is also what the dealer does.
1) Take dipstick out and suck oil out of dipstick tube with extractor
2) Loosen filter and let it drain, then replace filter
3) Fill new oil
4) Reset service indicator
That is a 502/505 spec oil, not 504. I haven't found any locally available (or Amazon) 0w30 504 oils in a 5qt jug, just the 1qt.But... I found this at walmart.. not under hood sticker spec but its 504 spec..
There are some screws to remove in the under-engine plastic cover. I don't remember how many. I did it that way for the first oil change, but I typically just use an extractor. Suck out the oil through the dipstick tube. No need to raise the car or take off that cover. Especially on this engine, which has the oil filter right on top. You could do the entire thing in dress clothes.What’s the process for removing the engine cover? Does just pull off?
