Found this on the PDF download: "Air filter element and snow filter: Replace and clean housing" called for every 60K...

Anyone have a visual aid that can show me where the snow filter is? Thanks!

Snow filter is a piece of whit foam like material glued to the filter element side. Your car likely has one from factory as mine did even though it was delivered to Texas. Just pop the filter box and look at the filter. I replaced ours at 40k service due to dust conditions here. Interestingly enough I couldn't find a non snow filter equipped air filter for replacement.

I wonder if there is some kind of correlation between the 40k being a "big" service and it being the first "non-free" one.

(I for one would have preferred a longer warranty from the factory and pay for maintenance, if the price of the car were otherwise equivalent.)

In Canada we don't get the free maintenance but do get a 4 year/80,000 km warranty instead.

What is the part number for the Mann oil filter for the 2013 Passat 2.0 TDI. I'm looking around and getting different numbers from different web sites.

Thanks!

(edit) is it this one?

http://www.amazon.com/MAHLE-Original...1&s=automotive

I can't find a Mann filter, only this MAHLE.

Looks the same as this Hamman:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=A39702CCOVJH2

Which, if you scroll down to the product description, says it's for a "2012 Diesel Passat." Is it? I don't know. We've still only got 4700 miles on our car, so I haven't actually bought one and changed it.

I just got back from having my 30K service done. I asked what the 40K was going to cost, I was told $490 for a 6MT, more for the DSG but I didn't ask as I have the MT.

I'd find a good independent, if I didn't plan to do it myself.

I just did the 40K service on my 6MT. ESP from Pep Boys for cheap with coupon. DEF from Walmart and filter pack from ID. Oil filter location absurd but still a very easy task. Less than one hour total.

Wow. I just called to schedule mine and was quoted $680.

For the DIY types: idparts carries the whole service filter pack in one convenient package. Support one of our sponsors and save yourselves the guessing game.

Their price on LiquMoly is more than $10 cheaper than Amazons - and they won't charge tax for most of us, unlike the Amazon. JIC - they are in Mass.

While saving ~$500+ by doing the service yourself is the driving factor for most of us, the other reason is to make sure it is all done properly.

If your friendly neighborhood mech decides to prime the fuel filter's clean side with unfiltered fuel, it is very likely your car will be toast. At the very least, make sure they understand that.

Here is the maintenance PDF from the TDI 101 forum. Very helpful.
Do you know if there is maintenance PDF for the 2011 VW Golf TDi? I tried the search but couldn't find a match. Thanks.
