If it's sealing completely and not leaking I can't imagine leaving it alone until the next oil change would be a problem. I've re-used O-rings plenty of times.

If you did not open that drain on the filter cap, you would not need to do so only to change the o ring.

if, on the other hand, you had opened it up, would be good to use the new small O ring.

Thanks Bueller and meerschm for the reassurance.

(Given that there is no tool/attachment for draining the filter for an MK7 I did not touch the filter drain).

Just did our first change yesterday with not much difficulty. Messier with the oil filter and the oil pan insulation absorbing some oil, but not terrible. I was also surprised to see that the oil pan is NOT plastic like I have read elsewhere. It looks to be aluminum wrapped in foam insulation, and then has a plastic cover over that!

I would like to add that the little grey clip on the (charge air system?) coolant pump was somewhat tricky as you have to pull it out and then also squeeze it like a normal connector to pull it off the pump. I just pulled the grey clip out and thought that was all there was to it and it gave me a fit obviously. Also, if not already mentioned, the oil filter cap drain plug is 13mm, and the oil pan drain plug is torqued to 22ft-lbs with new copper crush washer.

Volkswagen usually requires the dealers to bill out fluids such as coolant or in your case, oil a certain way for warranty purposes. Your dealer may have the LL03 in bulk, so they have it billed out as 1/10 of a quart i.e. 60=6 quarts. HTH.

Anyone have a part # for the oil drain plug? I'm planning to go to the dealer today to use my white dealer card to get all the parts needed for my 20k service.

Have them run the VIN.

or you can enter vin and dive down.

https://consumerlink.oeconnection.com/87058464014618647

here or elsewhere.

I found online access from a dealer to be less cost. (sometimes. today my local dealer set something so now the onliine prices match retail listed on other sites)

check the oil. my dealer started selling the 507 00 oil in quarts vs liters. (same price)

Thanks for posting this Jason. I followed you instructions and completed the oil change in about an hour and a half.

Very helpful Thanks. What a PITA that filter location is. Ugh I wish they'd left it topside like my other VWs and E46 BMW.
