I just finished my first oil change on my 2013 3.6lt Treg. A couple comments:
-As previously posted, the 3.6lt takes 7.3 qts of oil, not 6.6qts as stated in owners manual.
- The torque value for the oil filter housing is indeed on the housing, nice (unlike Mk 4 TDI's)
- Even though all previous oil changes were performed at the dealer, the filter housing 6mm allen drain plug was totally stripped. Boy was that a mess pulling that oil cartridge off full of oil.
- The 19mm drain plug had rounded corners such that an 18mm socket (suprised I had one) fit perfectly. I'll see if I can find a magnetic replacement.
