Hello all and Merry Christmas,

I own a UK model mk7 1.6L diesel bluemotion 15 plate. I am thinking of doing the oil change myself. I have changed oil on most of my previous cars and feel fairly competent to do so on this car. I do not have the manual by the way. I intend to buy everything from VW. The questions I need answered from you knowledgeable people are the following:
1. What oil is needed
2. How much oil is needed
3. Sump torque value
4. Torque setting for oil filter housing
5. Torque setting for inside plug of oil filter housing

Thanking you in advance
