How to change oil change interval number

As stated. How do I change from every 10,000 to every 5,000 on a 2011?

Not sure you can as the VW programmed alternative to 10K/12 months servicing is Long Life which is around 18,000 miles or 2 years, whichever comes first.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

You can change it via VCDS, or at least you can in the previous generation (7L) 2003-2010 as I changed it in my previous 2008 model.

That is a great question that from what I can see from this thread..... no one has answered. My 2011 Treg FSI oil interval is set to 3,000 miles. I'd like to change it to 7,500 miles using VCDS. Has anyone figured out how to do this on the T3's?

Using VCDS, go into the instrument module and locate ESI and/or SRI service distance intervals.... I can't recall the exact label. You can then alter both the distance and time values to whatever you want. There are settings for both the inspection and oil change intervals.

Yes VCDS is the way to go to do this.
I've already changed mine to 5k miles. I was going to set it at 7.5k miles but decided 5k was a better interval.
The value needed to be entered in kilometers. A quick conversion gave me the right number for a 5k interval.
