    By the coolant resevoir there is a small black plastic box shaped thing with a green lid. If you look closely there is a steering wheel pic on it.

    Just ensure you use VAG mineral oil (available from VAG dealers for about £8).
    Don't use anything bought in the high street or you'll knacker the system.

    I always use the VW garage, just refuse to give any business to Southampton Audi. VW are just so much nicer.
