How do I check and top up the oil?

Ask your Volkswagen retailer for a top up kit. The kit includes a handy pouch, oil funnel, wipes, gloves and velcro fixings to keep it safe within your boot. When topping up, it's essential to pour oil gradually and not top up with too much as it can cause engine damage. Check your dipstick to ensure you have sufficiently topped up your engine oil; this should be up to the maximum level indicator on your dipstick.
