How do you reset the "service reminder" when you have completed the service? I just completed doing my 40K service, I have a VCDS, I just haven't figured out how to reset the service reminder.
Thanks

Just had my 40k with the DSG serviced for $593.02. Called around to several VW dealers and the closest to home was the cheapest. BTW, when they quoted the job it was $618... They came in under their quote. I was amazed!:D
Good to go for another year.

Has anyone been able to cross the fuel filters for the NMS? NAPA had their annual half price sale and were unable to source a filter. $40+ is a lot for a filter!

One source / proprietary = $40. When Wix & everybody else starts making it, $10.

:mad: Wonder when/if after markets can start copying?

With the hpfp failures, I would only use Mann. Aftermarket oil filters are available.

Can anyone post the thread showing all of the required tools to perform oil and fuel filter changes, including belly pan, req'd torque, etc.? Also, for the bottom drainers, are you guys lifting up the front only using ramps?
Thanks
Jared

There is special sunroof grease/lube available. Not sure who sells it, but I'm sure a quick Internet search will return some results.

ID parts sells it.

Not sure of the thread but you will need a 25 and 30 torx for belly pan, 19mm wrench or socket for drain plug. The filter is a 32mm socket. I believe the fuel filter is 25 torx as well.

If you remove the filter housing you will need a 10mm socket there I believe. I do drain mine from the bottom on ramps. I have a fumoto valve with a nipple and just put on a short length of hose and drain right back into an empty 5 liter jug that I emptied the last change.

Here are some pics from our 60K service...

Air filter doing it's job

Primed the fuel system with the VCDS output test for the fuel system electronics (didn't pre-fill the filter housing). After about 30 seconds all of the air was purged out and it started right up.

If you changed that filter at a 20K interval, where do you live? I change the cabin filter in our SAAB 9-5 wagon at the recommended 30K interval, and from the appearance of the filter, it's an exercise in futility. They look as clean coming out as they did going in. I've found a few small leaves and a few windborne seeds (maple, etc.) in there, but that's about it.

The filter was changed at 60k for the first time.

Woops! I didn't think to check the maintenance schedule. When someone earlier in the thread said it was part of the 20K service, I just assumed that was the interval.....

I'm nearing my 40k and have a quote from a local TDI mechanic for labor. Does anyone recommend any of the customizable upgrades from the IDparts kit?
