Hi. How does one change the oil cooler on a VW Polo Calssic 1.9 Tdi/2006. Secondly - what are the symptoms that it needs to be changed? eg - I have oil in the water bottle. Does that mean the oil cooler is the problem? Thanks. Andre

SOURCE: oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.

The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.

Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.

You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.

The head gasket is another story.

Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.

Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.

Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.

If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.

If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve

If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.


If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

SOURCE: 2006 Jetta TDI Tiptronic Maintenance

The tiptronic is not the DSG - two separate transmissions. You don't need to service the tiptronic every 40k like you do the DSG.
VW considers the fluid in a Tiptronic tranny as "lifetime" fluid - it doesn't need to be changed.

SOURCE: Removing VW polo 2005 battery?

Removing a battery from a Beetle is a bit complex and tricky. I just changed the battery in a 2003 2.0 Beetle. However, the process is very similar in a TDI Beetle. You will need more than your standard generic tool set in order to complete this task. Your tool list needs to consist of a pair of pliers (prefer locking type), a # 20 TORX head screwdriver (You will also need this if you ever plan on changing the Beetle's internal dash pollen filter for the A/C. ), a 10 mm and 13 mm sockets, a long extension and a wobble or universal to allow flexibility in tight spaces, an allen socket for removing the power steering reservoir, and a small adjustable wrench or a 10mm to remove the battery cables. If you are changing the battery you might as well buy a new Air filter since you will need to remove the air box in order to replace the battery. If you do change the air filter you will need a phillips head screwdriver.

1. Pop the hood.
2. Remove the two 10 mm bolts that hold down the air filter box.
3. Undo the clamp that holds the large tubing to the air box using your pliers. Move the tubing away from the box.
4. Unclip hose attached to the back of the air box near the large hose (under it).
5. remove the small breather hose from the air box.
6. Pull air box up and out.
7. Remove snap on cover from top of battery.
8. Remove small snap on wiring cover from back of the battery covering.
9. Unbolt power steering reservoir (next to battery case).

10. Disconnect the battery cables. Positive side first.
11. Remove the 13 mm bolt at the base of the battery along with the hold down clamp.
12. Pull the top wiring away from the battery case and then slide the battery towards the engine.
13. Remove the plastic battery case.
14. Remove the battery

SOURCE: I need to replace the rear brake pads on my Polo 1.9 TDi

this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your assistance. I found out the turning piston part by mistake, a day after I posted the question, when I tried to use a G-Clamp."

Hi, it is a mineral power steering oil. not a transmission oil or dextron 2 or 3. Top up oil is available from the dealership network in 1 litre bottles. It is green in colour. Most european brands use the same eg BMW/ AUDI/SKODA/SEAT.

2006 jetta tdi oil change


Consult the Owner's Manual, or view the oil specifications on the fill cal or dipstick (usually the fill cap) located under the hood. Depending upon mileage you may not want to vary from manufacture specifications, or risk voiding your vehicle's warranty should any remain. The VW TDI's are typically high maintenance engines. I would strongly recommend staying with the manufacture's oil specifications, and do not overfill the oil in your vehicle.
