Just for anyone changing their own oil between services. The socket size in the service manual says the plastic oil filter cover is 36mm on the MY2020 3.0 TDI. But it’s actually 32mm.
It’s a little hard to get to the oil filter in the newer version due to the big plastic air intake on top of the motor.

How did you get to the oil filter. Did you remove the air intake if so how?
Was too hard for me so I gave it a miss and just did the oil.

I think there was an easier way but I undid the 6 bolts (3 per side) on the tubular cross member then unclipped the two air intakes. Lifted up the whole section as high as I could and jammed rags under both sides to hold up and then got in with a 32mm socket and undid it.
It worked and was ok but I think there may be an easier way??

It would be good to be able to get a PDF workshop manual to go with the service manual. Make all our lives easier 😁😂
