300 TDI oil change


Recommended Posts


Has anyone else noticed how when you remove the sump drain plug the oil hits the anti-roll bar and goes everywhere ?

Well as we have a new drive I decided to try a mess saving idea. Cut one of the bottom corners out of a 4 pint plastic milk container, about three inches is fine. Loosen the plug until its hand tight and then hold the upside down milk container close to the sump and unscrew the plug. Don't forget to remove the lid ||| I let it drop down the the shute into the oil catcher. The result was perfect. No mess and no cost.
