Replace all filters - air, oil, and fuel. Get dealer or very reputable shop with proper VAG computer to do the fuel filter...

Sorry but the fuel filter is as easy as pie to replace, No VCDS required.
Just watch this video and you'll be fine.


Takes about 15-20 minutes tops.


Change fuel filter

takes 15-20 min, and another 15-20 min to clean up the spilled diesel and wash off your hands.

I use a plastic store shopping bag to immediately transfer the filter into after letting the fuel from the filter run into the filter housing, I also wear disposable vinyl gloves doing that.
No muss, no fuss, no cleaning up !
