Re: WK2 External Air Access?

Barboots is right, I'd avoid raising or lowering your suspension until you get the tank refilled or you may need a tow truck to get it to the dealership.

700nm I think. Or at least that's for the eight speed, not sure about the gearbox in a 2012 model.
Edit : one site says it rated to almost 600 ft-lb, so that's around 800nm (5G-tronic W5A580).
