So has anyone found the answer to the original question? "can the '12-13 Passat fuel filter be primed by turning the key three times, or do you need computer access or to hot wire pumps?"

You don't need to prime it folks. When you turn the key you should hear the canister fill.

Funny on the oil change video he says your-ea instead of you-rea.

The dipstick is not a good indicator of oil level during a drain. After about 1 -2 liters having been removed it will show as empty on the dipstick.

As well you should remove the filter and open the oil cap before you drain. This always frees up additional oil to drain out of the engine.

You are correct, no-blue... they simply remove and install new filter element. They don't dump the diesel out of the housing either. A visual inspection is done... and then the new one is inserted. Turn the key to on for a few moments and then crank the car.

Here is a link I found:

Looks like this is on a Golf/Jetta - can't imagine that it's much different on the Passat. Hopefully someone else can confirm. A coworker bought the refill kit and I helped him change his. Pretty easy - just make sure the car is cold first. After a couple of hours, the fluid temp (after changing) was still too high to check level. It warms up pretty quickly so start stone cold if possible.

Since every rig I own has at least 200,000 miles on it I need this NMS to be a half million mile car- so I plan to do the top fill method at 20,000 miles just to be 100% sure the fluid is metallic free and assembly RTV free. I have never had to tear down a engine or trans on my rigs in my entire life but have rebuilt family and friends autos several times- rule of thumb is if it isn't broken fix it
I know im comparing apples to pickles here but I dropped the oil on my Honda ATV at just 100 miles (1,000 was recommended) and the filter was completely packed with orange RTV- causing low oil pressure when operated at redline.
I feel that $60 oil change 100% saved the engine.
Take care guys, Joe

I'm approaching my first 10k mile service. As such, I've been getting a "Service in X-number of days" message in the MFD for about a couple of weeks now and just within the last few days, the message changed to "Service Now."

My question is, do I wait until the 10k mile mark or go by what the car is telling me? My instinct is to wait until 10k miles.

Hunted and pecked from a Galaxy S4A.
