I'd love to see a print out of the factory TT oil change procedure like the na version , as the few printed word versions I've read still leave me a bit confused as to location of certain drain plugs and pans .

The tank is on the right (passenger) side of the car.

My understanding is you would need to drain the oil from the bottom of each turbo and that it is an 8 mm hex bolt. Sorry, I do not have a picture or diagram. I'm trying to arrange to take pics with a local guy on his TT oil change. BYW... even after draining all three there is still 4 liters of oil in the engine.

Loren, your directions show the drain plug on the crankcase ( and oil tank ) to be retorqued to 44 ft -lbs. I've seen another DIY post that says the crankcase drain plug should be re-torqued to 52 ft-lbs. Can you check to see which is correct ? TIA.

Here is what the service manual says for (old) GT3, GT2 and TT...

Drain plug on the crankcase: 60 Nm (44 ftlb.) 

Drain plug on the oil container: 60 Nm  (44 ftlb.)

Both have a soft crush ring so I doubt 44 or 52 lbs will make much difference.
