Should be on the back side of the oil pan about dead center. At least for the 1.8 and 2.0 liter engines. You will need a 19mm wrench or socket (if its the O.E. drain plug). Be careful when tightening the drain plug after draining the oil. The oil pan is aluminum and we replace a fair amount of them because the threads for the drain plug are stripped out. The drain plug only needs to be torqued to 22 ft-lb.

How to reset oil light for 2000 jetta vr6


Did you have the oil leak prior to changing the oil? The "change engine oil" indicator is just a service reminder to get the oil changed. You need to reset it. Call your local dealer or check your owner's manual for instructions on doing this. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
