SOURCE: Oil filter location Audi Q7 3.6

- When removing the plastic belly pans, don't assume all the fastener bolts are the same. They're all torx but there are actually three type is obviously unique because it has grey bolt heads with washers. The other two types are black pan-head bolts. But of the black pan-head bolts there are two thread types so it helps if you can keep track of the few that are different (I drove myself crazy when I thought they were all the same because they wouldn't fit). The grey and black bolts are different torx sizes too, though I didn't think to make note of what the sizes were.

- A 6mm hex bit or allen wrench is needed to drain the oil out of the filter assembly.

- A 36mm socket is necessary to remove the fluted cup that holds the oil filter. Also really helps to have a long extension (e.g. 10") for the socket wrench. There's a high-pressure hose that partially blocks access to getting the big socket on the filter cup, but it can be gently pressed out of the way. Be careful though, it could be easily knicked or damaged if you get too rough with it.

- The filter and cup that holds it are snapped together and apparently have to come out together. Unfortunately, the unit won't come out straight down after you've unscrewed it because there's not enough space for it to fit. I had to snake it out by moving it forward through the engine compartment. Very frustrating. Also, I found that the job of getting the filter out was really messy so be prepared by wearing old work clothes or whatever. Even after draining the oil out of the filter assembly with the filter drain plug, there is still oil left in the cup, so when you manuever it out of the engine it spills quite a bit.

- The drain plug on the oil pan is 19mm but there's not enough clearance to get a socket on it so I had to use a box-end wrench (open-end wrench would obviously work too).

That's about it, otherwise it's straightforward as you'd expect an oil change to be. If I think of anything else I'll add it later.

Should I buy a Skoda Kodiaq or an Audi Q7?

Comparing a Skoda Kodiaq with an Audi Q7 is like comparing Rs. 25 lakhs to Rs. 80 lakhs (literally). Audi is the ultimate brand in the luxury segment while Skoda is the low-cost brand of Volkswagen.
Here are some points why Audi Q7 is better than Skoda:-
1)Audi has a great resale value, much more than that of Skoda.
2)The technology used in Audi cars about half a decade ago is now being used in the new Skodas. That is how much advanced the German company is.
If you compare them hand-on-hand, this is the result you will get.
1)Both the cars are powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine (a diesel engine is also available in both). But what is different here is that the Audi Q7 produces 248 bhp/370 Nm of power/torque. The Skoda Kodiaq makes just 177 bhp/320 Nm of power/torque.
2)The Audi Q7 has an advanced AWD which, I am sure, you will love. The Kodiaq will have AWD only on the top spec model.
3)Audi has high-tech features including a 23 speaker audio system. You will miss that in the Skoda.
4)The Audi Q7 has 8 air bags and is equipped with almost all the safety features. The Skoda has a few of them only.
5)The Audi Q7 is better in terms of design, any day.
But then, there is one more fact that you have to mention if you are comparing a Skoda Kodiaq and an Audi Q7. The difference in price between the two is humongous, almost half a crore for the entry level variants. So if you can afford an Audi, look no further, the Skoda Kodiaq does not stand a chance here.

Audi q7 oil filter location

The Audi Q7's filter is located in a housing on the drivers side of the engine, slightly above the Oil pan.
To get to it, raise the Q7, and take off the plastic skid plate that runs along the transmission. Once that is off you will see the Oil Drain Bolt. Look to the left of the Oil Pan, and you will see a black cover with a 36mm, 6 pt. nut on it. Inside there is the oil filter.
The Oil Filter Removal tool can be purchased at either Pep-Boys (which it where I bought mine), or NAPA (which takes about a day to get).

2010 audi q7 shows on the board service 700km 30 days. what does it mean? what service is it?

It's the normal car service reminder due. Whichever will be reached first: 700 km, or 30 days. In other words after 700 km, or if you don't drive the car 700 km within 30 days, you should carry out the car maintenace: engine oil & oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, pollen & dust cabin filter, ...
Then you will need to reset the "Service due" message on the dashboard. For Audi Q7 made year 2010, the Service Interval Indicator can only be reset with the VAS 5051 or similar diagnostic tool connected to the data link connector of the car.

Hello, can you tell me what alternative oil I can use in an Audi Q7 3000cc 2008 please? As an alternative to Mobil 1 Thanks Linda

All manufactures have a full synthetic,similar to Mobil 1. I use Mobil 1 and see no reason to switch,and I base that on pulling a couple oil pans that were very clean inside. If you want to save money,you will have to leave the full synthetic oils. The manufacture specs on the back of the bottle are whats important ,as well as the correct oil weight.
