Hi all, This question has been asked many times but the answers seem to differ ?
I have an A3 audi 2L TDI 140bhp 2005 8P Chassis and has a long life service since new, I have decided to service my car myself as the warranty is out.
Can anyone tell me if the service indication on the dash be removed without the use of VAG-COM ? If so what is the process in turning of the service indicator as I will service the car every 10,000 miles from now on in.
Many thanks.:blackrs4:

is that only on the long life service Staz? According to my manual you switch on the ignition, pull the knob next to the speedo it should say SERVICE, then pull it again until its says SERVICE IN ---KM---DAYS

Oh, in that case I may be talking rubbish!

There's a thread about it somewhere.....

Yes my manual tells you how to reset it using the button too...

(although I recall from a previous thread a suggestion that if you manually reset it, it reverts to fixed service interval warnings, not variable....)
