Service Schedule for MK7 Golf 1.8t (2015, 2016)

May 3, 2016
|

Looking for the service manual requirements for your VW MK7 Golf 1.8t?  We put together a quick and easy list of what is required at each service interval.  The list shown below is 100% as per Volkswagen’s recommended interval.  Most MK7 owners who are meticulous about maintaining their vehicle will change their oil every 5k miles instead of 10k.  Doing this is a matter of preference and you should consider doing what you believe to be the best choice for you.

 

What should I make sure I do if I am doing my own MK7 Golf 1.8t maintenance?

If you have decided to maintain your own vehicle you should be sure to do a few things.

  1. Keep meticulous service records including mileage, date and proof of purchase of the parts.  This is important because if you ever run into a warranty issue they may ask you for service records.  Failing to produce these could result in a denial of a warranty claim.
  2. Make sure you are using oil that meets the required spec.  As per the owners manual you can use 5w-30 or 5w-40 but the oil must meet the required Volkswagen Spec of “VW 502 00”.  All of our MK7 Golf 1.8t maintenance kits include oil that meets or exceeds this spec.

    Hi, Thanks for this valuable information.

    Just picked up a 2016 Golf 1.8T. How about mx intervals for fuel filter, timing belt, accessory belt?

      Fuel Filter – Your car doesn’t have one.
      Timing Belt – Your car has a timing chain
      Serpentine Belt – No replacement interval but check for wear 40k and replace as needed
