The insert or cartridge filters are easy to change..You must jack up the front of the car, remove the engine belly pan. in the front of the motor there is a black cylindrical housing for the oil filter cartridge..On the bottom is a cap that just screws off..Unscrew the cap, take it off, slide the old insert off, then slide the new one on..Screw the cap back on and voila! you are finished..If the insert came with a new rubber o-ring, make sure to replace the old one on the cap.

I have a 2002 Audi TT Quattro. Recently my oil warning light started flashing and does not go off. The oil level is fine. Any ideas what could be causing this

Could well be the sensor/sending unit at fault as Dan states.
Could also be the oil has lost some of its viscosity, become thin and not enough pressure for the sensor to work with.
Had a similar problem with a Citroen some years back was advised to drain the oil, flush the engine out with flushing oil (please read the manufacturers instructions closely) fit a new filter and refill. This worked well for me, also cured a smoking problem from the exhaust.

Location of fuel filter on a 2001 audi tt quattro

On a 2001 Audi TT Quattro the fuel filter is located forward of the fuel tank, in the right rear wheel well area. The fuel line clamps are a bit tricky. The change will improve performance. The owners manual does not even list changing the filter. But do it! use a Fram, and it fit perfectly. Good luck.
