Changing the engine oil & replacing the oilfilter on a 106  
English version Nederlandse versie

Changing the engine oil is of essential importance for the engine. Change the oil when the engine is hot, as the engine oil is thinner and it will flow easier out the engine. The written steps are done on a 106 GTi but the idea is the same for each car.

    As an alternative to the oil filter 1109N2, 1109TO can also be used. The costs for the filters are about 6,-. The crankcase drain packing ring, 016454, is often given away free by the dealer. Check the maintenance guide for the type and amount of motor oil necessary. In this article for the 106 GTi, 3 litres of Esso Ultron 0W30 full synthetic motoroil is used. This is one of the more expensive motoroils available (10,- a litre).

    First, make sure you choose level ground. Place the old papers beneath the engine. Jack up the car at the right front. This isn't necessary but it will make the oil change a lot easier. Support the car with the axel stands and remove the right front wheel. Place the catch jerry can beneath the oil sump.

    Slacken the crankcase drain packing ring with key 24 (pull the key towards you). When undoing the drain plug keep it pressed in. Beware that the packing ring can fall into the (hot) dirty motoroil that flows out the crankcase. Should the packing ring fall in the old oil then you should get it out (and get some very dirty hands). Drop the car and wait till all the old motoroil is out of the sump.

    When all the motoroil is out of the crankcase, jack up the car again. Replace the packing of the crankcase drain packing ring. Remove the motoroil of the crankcase with an old piece of clothing. Turn the crankcase drain packing ring back on the crankcase (turn away from you).

    Move the catch jerrycan under the oilfilter. Untwist the oilfilter with a filter removal tool (with chain is the best to use). The last part can be done with your hands. Leak the motoroil out from the filter above the catch jerrycan.

    Put the right wheel back on the car and level the car. Clean the oil filler cap. Fill the engine with 2.7 litres of motoroil. Start the engine and wait about 2 minutes. Then turn off the engine. Check the oil filter and the crankcase drain packing ring for leakage. Wait another 15 minutes before checking the oil level. Add some motoroil when required. The oil change is done!
