Hi,

I have a habit of saving lots of different bits of information/websites and storing them for when I need them. I thought I would put them into a handy little thread and if anyone has any other guides, throw them up...

So working from VW Jims handy page I have listed whats required of a service.. Then included videos/webpages where possible..Jim has a full service schedule on his webpage HERE. I have supplied the 3K service with videos below as I think its the most common one carried out by us. If others want to we can keep adding guides and get a comprehensive service thread on here. With where to get the best quality parts etc?
