    Oil filter location?

    Hi all,
    Quick question, can anyone tell me where the oil filter is located on the 1.6tdi A1 Sportback (2012).

    Thanks

    Have a look in your handbook.
    Sure someone more knowledgeable than me will be along to give you a definitive answer.

    Here's an image from Audi, apparently of a 1.6TDI as fitted to the A1 Sportback (I would imagine largely the same throughout the range).

    As you look at it, you can see a fairly featureless shiny box pretty much slap-bang in the middle of the image (due east of the alternator). As far as I can work out, that's the oil cooler, which is attached to the base of the filter bracket - certainly there's a cylindrical unit visible behind it, which I'd suggest is a good candidate for being the filter bracket. It should just unscrew at the top, allowing you to pull the filter insert out (of course with a suitable amount of swearing due to it being the insert type, and drenched in oil! ).

    Hope that's useful; all the best,

    Rob.
