    thanks loz.......is it true that the sump plug is plastic? I'm still toying with the idea of buying one of those oil extractor pumps.....but surely it's best to remove the sump plug? :thumbsup:

    The sump washer comes on the bolt so VW recommend replacing it when servicing, depending what it's made of/how soft it is this may or may not be necessary

    Put one of these on a standard sump plug - 5 x 3 Rare Earth Magnet You can glue it on if you feel you must but it's not going anywhere.

    Just to round this off I can confirm that the AP08 is the correct part for my EU6 150.

    So I purchased my "Gold Plug" magnetic sumplug, very nice, and supplied it to my dealer when it went in for is first service and they flatly refused to fit a non-vw part!

    @Loz , not sure if it’s just my iPad but I can’t access page 103 that covers the CXEB engine as that is what mine is?
