Default Unofficial MK7 Oil Change Guide

Start by securing car on jack stands or ramps and remove the belly pan.

8-T25 Torx
3-T45 Torx

Remove the drain plug using 19mm socket or wrench.



Remove t27 Torx and set aside the coolant heater if equiped (usually Canadian models)



Unplug the after run coolant pump,pulling the gray tab backwards in the direction of the wires and pull straight out.



Remove oil filter canister cap using 32 mm or a 1 1/4 sockets works too but it's tight.






Replace the cap O ring with new one with filter and place the filter in first then the cap it's easier that way I tried both.





Put the oil drain plug back in and torque to spec,can't recall.

Top up with 5.5L of your choice of 504/507 VW approved oil.



Start the engine and check oil level on flat ground.




Reset reminders to next service.

Works for both Golf And Jetta.

Tools needed;
T25
T27
T45
1/2" breaker bar 18" or Rachet
32 mm or 1 1/4 " socket with extension.
19 mm open end wrench.




Overall this took about 1 hour and not to bad at all. Not as easy as MK4, 5,6 but it's not difficult at all.

Good luck !
About 5L came out so I'm assuming consumption is about .5L per 16,000 km

Excellent and thanks Jason! I pulled my cover off underneath when I got the car home and saw its really not as bad as it looks. And an hour isn't bad at all.

Great thread! So can you not use an oil extractor on the Mk7?

Sure you can but you have to pull the lower paneling to access the oil filter anyway.

Looks like you still have to get under the vehicle to get at the filter. It would make sense that once you are down there, open the drain valve.
