    Thought I’d treat the RS to a DSG service.
    Old filter vs new

    Filter housing is a pig to get at though.

    6 litres took less than 10 mins to pump in.

    Started it up and warmed the fluid up to the 35-45 C range then unplugged the filler coupling and waited for the excess to drain out before it turned into a steady drip, then fitted new a drain plug.

    What's the tool you use to put fresh oil back in? Wouldn't mind doing mine.

    Same thing you'd use to do brake fluid?

    No it’s specific to filling transmissions.

    How you get the oil out? Just let it run out?

    Drain plugs.

    One on the bottom as in my picture.

    The other on the side near the front, to the right of the mech unit.

    Item 25 on the drawing is the mech drain plug.

    As mentioned above, m14 Allen bolt head in the main plug then a smaller I think 7 mm plastic snorkel type plug inside this one for full drainage

    Sorry yes as Dan pointed out.

    In the service kit I bought you actually get a new plastic snorkel.

    The Snorkel is under the drain plug.

    You’ll need a hexagonal drain plug socket then an 8mm iirc hex bit to undo the snorkel.

    3nm torque for refitting the snorkel and 45 nm for the main drain plug.

    20nm for the smaller splined Mechatronic drain plug.

    How many miles? It's nice to see a decent sized filter in there, stands chance of getting through a service interval without clogging up!

    I'm only at 15k but suspect I already lost 2-300ml through the DSG breather. I must get round to fitting the catch catch. What is the OEM oil?
