If you got oil coming out when it's running around oil filter. You probably got a oilfilter adapter. You have to remove oil filter(replace) and let oil drop off adapter. After a bit wipe adapter off and you will foind one alan-head bolt in the center or two alan-head bolts. After removing clean, install gasket or a o-ring it could take both. Don't over tighten bolts. Make sure you clean off old oil where oil filter seats
The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck!
near the oilfilter there are two sensors i think with only one wire
when you make contact between wire and earth the alarm goes.
disconnection will abort alarm.
with no oil or oilpressure it will cost you an engine.
right at the front in the middle below plastic housing. Has 1 large plastic cap on a metal lower casing, not metal bodied like old oil filters just has filter element. Also replace 'O' rings that should come with the new filter as the old will have squared off or become perished. I think you need a 27mm socket to undo the filer housing.
the crankshaft pos. sensor is just above the oil filter. take out starter and oil filter and make sure buy a new oilfilter or just make sure that you dont destroy the one on the car . remove plug and then replace with new sensor. and make sure all rubber rings if any avalable are replaced as well. then reinstall starter and oil filter and start car
