Thumbs up oil change procedure

Here's an example of how the average A8 customer we have handles servicing his/her car
to assistant, please call for an appointment
assistant, they can take the car in 3 days, would you be needing the flat bed to pick it up and deliver as usual ?
that easy, credit card's on file and not need to call for approval unless is over 3k

Nope...infinitely less involved...before Audi made their stupid decision to block access to the filter housing. All done from underneath...nothing in the way but the plastic belly pan. Same capacity & filter replacement/type...just be sure to buy correct filter for your year...comes with new o-ring.

My findings...

1. The airbox base was held down w/ 2 T20 Torx.
2. Like you, I detached the Airbox top from the MAF using the 2 screws but in the future I will disco the MAF elec. connection and loosen the clamp. I didn't like the way the screws went back in and I could tell that was the first they were removed.
3. I used the drain at the bottom of the filter housing and would recommend it

disconnecting maf is not recomendable. a regular practise that way means considerable damage for sure. but the steps laid out here are super cool and descriptive thanks for sharing.

Which disconnection of the MAF is not recommended? The 2 screws that hold it to the Airbox or the electrical connection? Either way, I am NOT taking those 2 MAF screws out ever again.
