Default 40K service checklist

Oil, urea, fuel filter, cabin air filter, tire rotation . Anything else ?
Going to be first one I am going to do myself, now that VW's freebies are over.

What do dealerships charge for it - in labor ? Good source for parts ?

Here is the maintenance PDF from the TDI 101 forum. Very helpful.

Having looked at the PDF, she looks like $500 service at the dealers. The list of checks goes on and on.

I'm coming up on ours too. Anyone got an idea what to use to lubricate the sunroof? Never had a sunroof before so I'm guessing some kind of silicone?

My dealership quoted me $530 for my 6m. I haven't been happy with them to begin with so there is no way I will go there for the 40k.

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

$530 ? Wow ...

40K has something like a dozen of checklists - that's why it is so labor intensive, IMO. "Check, examine, verify" etc etc.

The fluids/filters are no different from 20K service and so that's what I am going to do. Document stuff with receipts and may be a pic or two

And while on subject of sun roof - do poke those drains, gently, with some sort of wire/weed whacker line, to make sure they wont clog on you.

Some folx swear by Aerospace 303 to keep rubber that is exposed to the sun, shiny & happy

Yeah the price is a shock but I think it is an important step to maintain the sunroof's slides and deals over time.

Heck now I'm not so shocked. The maintenance schedule for the sunroof calls for part # G060172A3 to lubricate the sunroof seals. I haven't got a dealer quote yet (didn't bother), but google pointed me to that this is a kyrtox lubricant, and it's more than the rail grease. Got some at a GM dealer for a little more than the rail grease. I'll do a write up on it all when I get the parts delivered.


But I did get everything but the DSG and sunroof done today.


PS. I'd like to kick the guy who designed the oil filter and the clearance to get it out of the engine bay.
