I took my '02 GTI 1.8T into the dealer today to have them do the 5,000 mile service. I was doing it myself on Saturday, but I couldn't get the filter off. In fact, I shattered a metal filter wrench trying to get it off!
The dealer said it was tight, and they also found that the threads in the oil pan came off with the drain bolt! I guess I got Torquemondo to build my engine that day at the plant.
In any event, they replaced the oil pan under warranty. Pretty cool! How much would that have cost, normally?
