2.0 CC Oil Filter

Test drove one of these and the car seemed very nice and solid. Checked under the hood as I do with all of the cars I'd consider buying and the engine bay had something unique. It appeared that the oil filter was mounted on the top of the engine near the front of the engine and the mount was (I was thrown) upside down! Just the thought of loosening that filter gave me nightmares since all of the drive belts and pullies are directly below this location. Does anyone know, is there a special service procedure for this, bleed the filter down before removal? or was it all just a bad dream! Just wanting to satify my curiosity, knowing well that Volkswagen would never create an awkward situation for a tecnician!! Thanks

That does look like it could get messy (see attached image).

The eBahn repair manual does not go into specifics about
oil change procedure (at least that I could find) so I
can't post more.

Hi,
I think after about 10mins of the engine being off most (if not all) of the oil in the filter would drain down. And btw, over the years VW engineers have done plenty of things to make life difficult for whoever’s working on their cars:) (Love the CC though)

this procedure is for a different engine but uses the same tools and principal of draining the oil filter

Changed it - an absolute breeze on the 2.0L TDI. Drain oil first from sump (used Torx bit and ratchet to remove eight or so screws holding the plastic sump protector so I could then remove the oil pan sump plug). Ran a doughnut-ring of paper towels around base of oil filter to catch any oil drops and removed filter housing and old oil filter and replaced with new oil filter and the re-secured filter housing. Only a few drops of oil and they were soaked up by the paper towel. Easy job.
