Official MK7 Maintenance Schedule

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/ynawu6w2kb...02015.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/12mkj37y11...d_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 think that's in the manual but it's still handy to have available. Thanks for posting.

Indeed it is. I'll update it with a dropbox link, but if you look at the next line, it's also there as a link attached within the forum itself...

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.

Awesome. Thanks.

Love how the most thorough checkup is at 40k miles. Conveniently just over the warranty period.

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? Itís not listed on my maintenance manual.

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

Exclamation 'Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 2 Circuit High.' P2185

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.
