Fill the filter with ATF, if no diesel fuel is handy. The T section with double o rings and a hair clip was removed, pour ATF in the resultant hole until it was full. Remove the clear line from the filter to the pump by disconnecting it at the filter. With a thin tube fill the line with ATF fluid until no bubbles remained. Reconnect the clear line to the filter. The car should start immediately.

SOURCE: How much oil does 2002 tdi hold?
Synthetic Oil (approximately 4.0 quarts to 4.5 quarts depending)
The oil specified for use in the Volkswagen TDi for current models meets the "API Service CG-4" rating. This mark means that the oil has been tested for use in Diesel (C = compression ignition) engines to meet the requirements of a test level called "G" in a 4-stroke engine. The oil may also have been tested for use engines fueled by gasoline, methanol, propane, or other fuels ignited by a spark plug (S = spark ignition). The "S" ratings (SG, SH, SJ, etc.) have no bearing on the suitability of the oil to protect a Diesel fueled engine from the special demands imposed by the higher compression ratios and the tendency for all diesel engines to place soot in the oil.

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.

PROCEDURE TO CHANGE FUEL FILTER
1) open the drivers side door pull the hood release.
2) lift up the hood, ideally your car has been off for a few hours so it's not too hot under tehre.
3) look to your left there's a cylander with four hoses coming in and out of it. (two in, two out)
4) pull the mickey mouse looking pin from the two hoses that are in the back. the little circular thing should pop out with a little bit of effort.
5) look inside the fuel filter, doesn't it look gross? Aren't you glad your changing it? (most of the time it's going to look gross even if it's in good shape
6) Pull the squeeze clamps back from the other two hoses (the front two)
7) carefully pull those hoses away from the fuel filter (they both will probably have a little gas in them)
8) unscrew the phillips screw to the right of the few filter and remove the fuel filter'
From here you can try just draining the water from the filter and seeing if that solves your problem or you can replace the fuel filter.
9) the most important thing is to remember to put some diesel inside the fuel filter before you start your car other wise it'll be alot more difficult to start.
10) put everything back in place and start your car.
You'll probably have a little difficulty at first , but if you just keep cranking it (don't be afraid diesels are tough!) the car should start in less then 2 minutes. Obviously use common sense here but it shouldn't be too bad.

SOURCE: 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.
