Hm. I took this huge plastic panel to get to the oil drain plug. Maybe my tdi is special?

That's the sound-dampening shroud covering the lower half of the pan.

Default Prefill Oil Filter Housing

I was thinking of prefilling the oil filter housing, maybe half full of fresh oil with the new filter in place before reinstalling it. Has anyone done this without making a mess?

I always did this for engines that used canister type oil filters to reduce oil starvation time during the initial startup after the oil change.

With how hard it is to get the filter in there, it's not worth it. Also, there isn't that much oil in the filter and think about it this way, that oil isn't going to move till the oil pump pushes new oil through, how much less time does the engine go without oil if you prefilled? My guess is that it makes very little difference as from what i understand, the oil flows quickly enough that it's not an issue. I don't know for sure though

Thanks to the OP for the write up. Changed oil last night as part of my mother's 40K service (still need to do DSG and stock up on air and fuel filters from rock auto).

Is there a purpose for a small o-ring with the filter? I know what the larger o-ring was for (and used accordingly for the cap).

And I must say, the location for the oil filter is stupid as ****! I don't know what the hell VW was thinking - mk4, good. Mk5, good. Mk6, good. mk7 - *** with putting the oil filter upside down and on the bottom, let alone at an angle?

All in all, the whole process took about 30-40 minutes. Eventually, the DPF will find its way into the recycling bin, so I just used Rotella T6, as I'm not wasting money on 507 00.

The small o-ring is for the drain plug on the bottom of the filter cap. Makes it not quite as messy with that location. I've learned that if you can get the car in the air level rather than nose up/rear down, it will drain without hitting the block.

Drains the headache so it's less of a mess!

There's a mini plug on end of canister.

Total cost: $23 (incl. taxes). I know I could get the DEF for a bit cheaper elsewhere (~$20 for the 2.5gal container)... I am really thinking of doing my own oil change + own diesel filter change.
WalMart sells the 2 1/2 gallon box of BlueDEF for $12.99 or $14.99 shipped to their store! But I don't know where you're located!! And lots of auto supply stores like O'Reilly's run it on sale quite often.

i won't pay more than $10 for a def jug, so many auto parts have sales, let alone it can be had for less than $3/gal at the trucker pumps.
