Service Schedule for MK7 Golf R (2015, 2016)

January 11, 2016
|

Looking for the service manual requirements for your 2015-2016 VW MK7 Golf R?  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 R 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 R maintenance kits include oil that meets or exceeds this spec.
