      Does anyone know what the proper torque is for tightening the oil pan drain plug on a 2012 VW Jetta 2.0L (non TFSI) petrol?

      Thanks

      30NM or 22ft/lbs and use a new crush washer.

      Oil Drain Plug Torque ?
      I have a 2007 Toyota Camry with a 2.4 liter engine in it . I am very particular about torqueing things to the proper torque values . The drain plug is not leaking onr bit !!!! I have been riding motorcycles for many years and have seen applicaions were the motorcycle manufacturers would use " magnetic " drain plugs in some applications and was thinking of buying one for my 2007 Toyota Camry thr next time I change the oil and filter . I REPEAT , THE CURRENT FACTORY INSTALLED OIL DRAIN PLUF IS NOT , IS NOT LEAKING AND I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF SOMEONE COULD E-MAIL ME AS TO THE PROPER TORQUE VALUE IN FT. LBS. i ASSUME THAT THERE WILL BE A SMALL TOLLERENCE OF BETWEEN A , THIS AND THAT . ( LIKE TO TIGHTEN IT TO BETWEEN 15 - 20 FT. LBS. ) i WOULD CERTAINLY APPRECIATE AN INFO THAT SOMEONE COULD E-MAIL ME BACK WITH !!!! tHANKS SO VERY MUCH FOR FOR YOUR TIME AND EFFORT FOR ME !!!!

      Seriously? This is a VW forum man. Someone here may know what the torque value is, but honestly, Google will likely know before we will. 22 ft/lbs is right for VW's. Talk to Toyota, or go to a Toyota forum to get this information, instead of yelling out like a child when you don't get the information you want on a VW forum, about a Toyota!
