    quick oil change question

    how much oil is needed on a change - including filter and what sort of sump bolt does it have (torx / spline hex etc) ? 2001 S3 AMK - should the sump bolt (or washer) be changed also ?

    Should be 4.5 litres with a filter change.

    Sump bolt is a standard hex 19mm. When you ask for a sump washer you get the bolt as well attached. I always change both.

    Not off the top of me head. Just give VAG a call, its only about 1.50 for the bolt and washer.

    You don't 'need' one if you make sure you heat it up so it comes out without stripping the threads. I'd still have one as a backup though...

    If the threads get stripped then then the previous mechanic has been an idiot and either tightened it too much or cross threaded it!

    Sump nut shouldn't be a prob at all.

    Indeed you can anneal the copper washer, but why bother as they are so cheap, unless of course its a for "green" reasons.
