Thanks for the video Charles. My question is, does the Pennzoil platinum comply with the VW 502 oil spec, which is required for your car?
Hmm, non VW compliant oil, and no awesome VW tech tricks to prevent oil flood spills from changing that filter?
And you don’t pre-fill the new filter? for shame!
Actually a good video, I will now relax a bit next time I change my 2004 GLS 1.8T oil (With Kendall GT1 Full Synth 5W40 and Mann Filter prefilled :o)
Why would you WANT to work as a VW mechanic. I work on aevrage 1 a week and thats 1 too many. I think I would commit suicide if every car I had to work on was a VW.
hi I just was curious to know why you did not fill the filter befor putting the new one on?
Have always taken my auto to a mechanic to do oil changes. Though I am still hesitant, I think this video guide can help me improve over time.
