ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 3.0 VM Motori CRD

I changed the oil in My 2011 Australian Spec CRD today and did a full write up with pictures for everyone to enjoy. Please do not try this at home if you are not familiar with this type of work.
I am open to questions or comments on how it can be improved.

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

Thanks Enforcer great guide. Btw when do you intend changing the oil in relation to the scheduled services?

Upon reading the guide it seems you intend doing the oil changes. If so how did you get the dealer to agree?

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

I have never had a problem with telling my dealer that I do the oil changes, it has saved me a fortune. I will do the oil every 5,000km.
Dealers have now way they can make you get oil changes with them, as long as the filter and oil are spec and you do it according to the logbook (every 10k km) they can only charge you to kick the tyres. My servicing with Ford was $450 with oil change or $90 without. The oil and filter were about $100. They also use Castrol oil and charge a bomb for it. I will also be doing all the replacement parts for major servicing, being a mechanic (not for 20 years), I get trade pricing on parts.
It is very rewarding doing work on your car, the money savings are just a bonus for me.

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

Nice write up, the last car I changed the oil on was my 1978 HZ kingswood 4.2 ltr V8. I miss that old girl. We all used work on our cars at uni. Over tightening the sump plug was the most common (and costly) error some guys made. I'll leave it to the experts these days.
