Question about 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI
Where is the oil filter located?
The oil filter is in a filter housing located on the top of the engine. Take the engine cover off. The 3, 10mm nuts are located under the circular pop-off covers that attach the plastic engine cover. You should see the oil filter housing to the right of the engine valve cover. The oil filter housing is a black, plastic cylinder with a cover that unscrews. The filter is inside of this. Make sure you drain the oil before unscrewing the cover to the filter housing.

SOURCE: I am trying to change
Remove the plastic engine cover. A cylinder with a screw off cap contains the oil filter cartridge. Remove cap, the oil will drain into the engine, remove filter cartridge. Replace the small O ring at bottom of the center rod on the cap, and also the larger O ring on the cap threads. (The O rings come with the filter)
