Hi All

As a recent purchaser without a full service history I was interested in changing all of the fluids and filters, but I'm unsure where to start.

I know many of you prefer Original parts, but I am open to upgraded parts as well.

So what do I need? (VW T5 2.5L 130 2008 LWB)

And where is the best place to get it....

Is there a kit?

Thanks you have all been great. T:

I'm going to do the same with the new (to me) van I'm picking up soon.

My list is like this, but don't know if missing anything.
- Oil & oil filter
- Diesel filter
- Air filter
- Pollen filter
- Brake fluid
- Anti freeze fluid
- Haldex oil & filter (if it has any filter, dunno yet. Mine is a 4-Motion)

If it is a auto, you can do the auto oil & filter too. T:

I think that is everything? :*

I got most of the bits I needed for servicing from AVS recently - good service and prices, most of the stuff they supply is OE or good quality pattern stuff. The prices are far cheaper than what the local TPS quoted me.

The list from TK. looks good to me, you probably also want to inspect the offside driveshaft/stub-shaft, all suspension joints, shocks and brake disks/pads etc before ordering parts incase anything else needs doing.

Just looking at this again, but my manual says that gate coupling is not needed to change on the newer 2.5s is this true?

It says 2.5s with DPF does not need to do gates coupling.

Anyone?

Just checked. My manual says says it gets done at 120,000 Miles / 180,000 km
