    Thread: 24V VR6 oil change how to lots of photos

    1. 07-26-2008 07:21 PM #176
      Hi FlDude,

      I know it's been years since you made this post - but just wanted to post to let you know that it was a huge help to me today! Especially the tidbit about the little o-ring on top of the filter cartridge - who knew?! Good tip on the beer, too - no job is complete...

      So, my '02 Jetta VR6 is now enjoying a fresh 6 quarts of 5W30 synthetic, thanks to your photos and efforts. Freshened up the K&N filter and changed the cabin-air filter while I was at it. 55K miles, still running mint, and life is good

      Who needs a new ride when the ol' wheels are running so well?!

      Thanks again - all the best,
      -Matt

      Just get your car up on ramps or something and look underneath it, it's really easy, but you do need the allen wrench, the torx driver and the 36mm socket (i believe, check the list above). I was a little concerned my frist time, having only changed oil in a honda before; This was easy as pie, just make sure you use the new gaskets to prevent leaks.

      p.s. if you really really want pics PM me and i will try to get out to take some this weekend.

      I have always changed oil myself in my previous cars, so I don’t think that this is such a big deal.

      When I got across this thread, I though it may be nice to see those images of DIY.

      Anyway thanks for your offer JettaGLI03.

      I have the same issue as many others here: The head of the 6 mm hex oil drain plug in the oil filter housing is damaged. I noticed this when I did my first oil change 5k miles ago (many thanks to the service department at the stealership... ).

      Does anyone know the part number for this drain plug? I'd like to order one before doing my next oil change a few weeks from now so that I can replace it and reduce the mess next time around.

      Oops, never mind, I found the part number in some other thread here:

      One of the first DIY's I downloaded to make sure i didn't lose it. Very helpful my first time and think of it fondly every time I'm under my dub every 3-4 mos or so.
      Many to you sir.
      Since the oil change, I've done door regulator replacements, VF Stg II install, full suspension + axle replacements etc. and it's always great to have input from those that have gone before, especially when the dub has so many fickle specialty fittings and connectors. If it were not for those, it would all be a breeze (save the cramped engine compartment).
      Thanks again but hey, what did you buy to replace the GTI and is it as fun? As nice?
      Mine's feeling long in the tooth but I'm addicted to the smoothness, the total sleeper shtick it has, the push back in the seat @ real RPM and the lux feel of the interior compared to oh so many cars I've recently rented (for business).
      What to get after so much fun and daily pleasure?

      Hopefully this thread isn't dead and I didn't want to make a new post on this but I'm having a really hard time getting the oil filter cap off. Any tips on how to get it to loosen up? I'm pretty sure you turn to the left, right?

      I haven't read through this thread, but I'm sure the info is in here.
      You need a 36mm socket, and it's a regular thread. So if you lie under the car looking up at the filter housing, you need to turn it anti-clockwise to remove it.

      Belive me I spent quite a bit of time looking up into the filter housing making sure there was no little o-ring stuck up there the first time i did an oil change.

      Just some clever packaging i guess. too bad VW can't tell you ANYTHING like that in the manual..

      All they say is Get your money and go to the Volkswagen dealer!

      Dear,

      I seems to me that you are wrong. The small O-ring is for the filter rod. The drain plug has another kind of seal.

      How bad is it to go one change without replacing the oil filter?

      For what it's worth:

      Changing oil on my 08 Passat V-motion. The filter I removed had the small o-ring on the end of it still.

      I called Purolator, because that's the filter I'm using for replacement - a Purolator L38113. They said the small o-ring on the filter should stay in place on the filter, and should not be used on the drain plug. The guy didn't sound like he was 100% sure of that though. Maybe 99%. He said any replacement O-rings should be loose in the box, as the large cap ring is.

      I'm leaving it on the filter this time and not replacing the drain plug o-ring - the combo of VW setting a precedent and Purolator's input is driving that decision. But I plan to look into it a bit more.

      Also, torque specs on the 3.6L are:
      Drain Plug: 30Nm
      Filter Cap: 25Nm
      Filter Cap Drain Plug: 10Nm


      Edit 9/23/12: I think that the small O-ring should STAY ON FILTER, and not be removed to use on drain plug. I think that this O-ring is intended to seal at the to top of the housing, and that removing it risks oil bypassing the filter. However, if you wanted to pull the slightly used O-Ring off of the used filter each change, and put that one on the drain plug, that may be a good idea.

      bump this maafug, just did an oil change on my 24v vr and it took about 6.3 quarts of oil. Also the 6mm hex bolt inside the filter housing stripped on me. Any ideas on how to get this out next time?

      try an internal wrench set or some triple square sockets.

      I bought a new plug about two years ago because it was stripped when I purchased the car, but good luck trying to remove the stuck one. Try as I might that stubborn bitch will not budge. Why it was machined from aluminum is unbeknownst to me, they should have just made it from silly putty.

      Here's the part and number for the drain plug.

      I still have one new lying around somewhere... hence you might as well find a whole new filter cap assembly, and they ain't cheap.
