Default CKRA or CVCA in a 2015 Passat?

Trying to order my oil change kit online. I've searched around and think I have the CVCA. Just wanted to double check.

Thanks!

We have the CKRA (EA189 engine group) in our '13 Passat. Don't know your exact model designation, but the 2015s have the EA288 engine group, so I'd say you're correct. There should be a sticker somewhere (ours was in the spare tire well) that gives the engine code for your particular model.

2015 is CVCA.

There is a tag on the engine timing belt cover if you ever are in doubt, but it is easy in this case since 2015 is the year they changed from the CKRA.

Dealers love to play that prank of people!!!! Hope you had a good laugh.

when in doubt force them to enter the VIN. I couldn't pick up a battery until I gave them the VIN.
