Yes, it's called QUICK LUBE $15.99-20.99. Sorry, but if you don't already know the answer to this question you shouldn't be underneath the car!

Oil change


Hi
see my previous post "oil filters" which basically the same as this
there is a special tool for removing the oil filter "plastic cover " - (a 14 flute 76mm cap type) & this is a "must have " or the cover can be damaged 17mm spanner/socket, 6 mm allen key for the drain in filter housing along with the new filter cartrdge you should also get the 2 "o" rings as well. there is website that Robert Aitchision hs put up which gives a complete description of how to do it with pics & what is needed.
Thanks Robert

Trying to change oil on a A6 Audi


If your looking for the filter and it is not below could be a canister filter on the top of the motor. If the new filter is a paper cartridge it will most likely be on the top. If not visible under the cover.

Oil Change Instructions for VW Touareg 2004


Hi,

I just did an oil change service on my Touran last night (same principal as the Toureg). The Touran has a bleeder (there is a seperate screw type cover under the filter) to release the excess oil in filter (not sure it the Toureg has the same)The aluminum casing around the filter is a bit tough to remove, but turning it anti-clockwise with a little bit of force should do it. Try not to use the special tools that are available to grip the casing as you may dent it. The sump plug can be removed with standard tools. I am still working on the reset option for the 'service now' warning
