Oil extraction is possible on the T3 CNRB V6 TDI

Happy to report that oil extraction - using an Exide 15L extractor and the skinniest tube it came with - worked perfectly and quickly, so Oil extraction is possible on the T3 CNRB V6 TDI. I got the extractor and oil kit at idparts - it was a great deal. I had previously tried to extract using my old 15 year old mityvac 7201 and was left frustrated - I guess I was not reaching the bottom.

Oil extraction is very handy and is probably mentioned over in the TDI section a few times: https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f93/

Picture of the Schwaben doing its job. Mine is only 6.5L so I have the empty it once during the process. Very happy with the process.

I bought an extractor from the same folks and tried it. It didn't work even tho oil was plenty warmed up. I ended up just dropping it from underneath like normal. Any tricks to using that thing?

This was the first time using mine. I just pushed the tube all the way until it wouldn't go any further and then pulled it back an inch or so. All connections must be tight because even a small leak will cause you to lose vacuum. I only had to pump mine about 6 times and the oil started flowing. Then I stopped pumping and let the vacuum do its job.

For troubleshooting: Try pumping it with nothing in it. Feel how light or easy it is. If you stick the tube down in the oil and it is still that easy then you have a major leak or you are not in the oil. The pump should require a little more effort since you are building vacuum.

Hope that helps.

I pretty much do the same as trdltly does - with this extractor there were 2 diameter extensions - I used the thinner one and push it until it did not go any further and maybe come up a smidge - I was worried the thin extension was not going to be long enough it came pretty close to where it connects to the thicker diameter - within inches. Also mine was up on ramps at the time - in case I could not get the goal of about 8 qts. I did not pull the plug but did measure the volume, and I got it all and could hear the tell tale bottom suction sounds I am used to after years of doing topsides on my Z3 for years - after adding 8 qts the electric gauge showed full.

Yes, topside is great - especially when the filter is on top - so easy and mess free.

This extractor is nice, it has a gauge, large capacity 15L, and pretty easy to disconnect to empty..

Iíve now tried with my mityvac a second time without success. Getting a 4 post lift installed next week for storage but will make getting to the drain plug a piece of cake.

I just went and checked the tube size of the mityvac - it is not as thin -diameter- as the thinnest/smallest diameter Exide tube- the mityvac diameter tube looks like it was the next diameter bigger (The Exide has the main tube and 2 different diameter extension tubes) - so perhaps it's the diameter of the tube?

Thanks DieselGator. How much oil (liters) did you extract?
