How to Change the Oil & Filters in a T5

In this video I show you how to change your oil and filters in a 2.0 TDI VW T5.1

I also show you how to reset the service indicator. Hopefully once you have watched this video a couple of times, you will feel confident in having ago at changing the oil and filter in your own VW T5. Essentially this is the main task that a dealership undertakes when they service your transporter - but they charge a small fortune!

Total cost for me to do this myself in my own T5 van was around £68 and that is only because the T5 2.0 TDI takes 7 litres of a high spec oil.

I have done other vehicles for around the £40 mark before that don't have such special requirements.

If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them below!
