    Oil change (probably not the usual question)

    Good afternoon folks,

    Planning on giving my a3 an oil change this weekend along with fuel and air filter (pollen filter will be done but there were none in stock). I did this myself on my last car (golf mk4) about every 6k and i'm going to continue with that with the a3.

    I have ordered a Haynes manual for it but it won't be here for the weekend. The main reason I want this is just for the location of filters etc, to be honest if I looked I would probably see them but I just haven't had much time to look since I got it.

    As i'm bored at work I thought I would call upon the experience of forum members ha ha Does anyone have any links to DIY guides or pdf's showing locations of filters etc


    Thanks


    Justin

    Cheers for the reply bud! Ye I probably should just look, but sitting at work bored, being able to see the car out of the window and not touch it (is that wrong? :/), I felt compelled to ask! ha ha
