I stumbled upon this PDF on the VW Partner Program website. I hadn't seen it posted anywhere previously but it is the official maintenance schedule for MK7.

Direct link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ynawu6w2kbnvmkq/2016 Maintenance Cards_USA_GTI__2.0T_August 2015.pdf?dl=0

I am also going to post the latest VW oil Compatibility Chart here since the poster of the oil thread isn't really active here anymore: https://www.dropbox.com/s/12mkj37y1124p5a/1997-2018_VW_Approved_Oil.pdf?dl=0

EDIT: It is important to note that for performance pack cars with the VAQ LSD, the service interval for your diff fluid is every 3 years/30k

I know there's a manual, but does anyone have the 1.8 maintenance schedule in electronic format. Haven't been able to find it anywhere.

3 years 30k.

Agree it's strange the interval isn't listed there.


Where did the 30k miles/3 yrs service interval for the vaq diff comes from? It’s not listed on my maintenance manual.

Note: For 2017+ GTI, spark plugs replacement are now every 40k miles/4 yrs.

I own a 2015 GTI, recently the yellow check engine light turned on. The code P2185 appeared, 'Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 2 Circuit High.'

I was advised to purchase a sensor:

I need your help desperately, I have no idea where the sensor is located in the car... please help
Make sure the engine is cold, then look down by your serpentine belt.

Brilliant and thanks for this. Amazed it wasn't supplied with our new car.
I read it and did not see that coolant should only be checked but not replaced?
If true, that is a relief as I read it takes 4 hours with pumps needing to be activated in a particular sequence via computer i.e. it is hardly a d.i.y. job.
Our previous car (Toyota GTS 86) had a seven-year coolant which made me happy.
