    It tells you in your owners manual. According to the manual:

    1. switch on the ignition
    2. when you pull the button next to the speedo, the word SERVICE should appear in the display.
    3. Pull the button again holding it out till it says SERVICE IN ----

    (It will come out of reset mode if you dont pull it before 5 seconds)

    I think that will put you on fixed intervals though.

    that's correct Stu. VAGCOM will allow you to switch it back to flexible.

    My DIS service due warning keeps coming up every 800 miles, i'm sure you can imagine how annoying this must be.

    How can I reset this so it indicates a service is due at a more realistic time than 800miles.

    I'm guessing it should be every 20,000?

    Would vagcom cure this?

    Yes VCDS can correct the service indicator however it should have been properly set by the servicing dealer.
