    I could not locate where the smaller o ring goes, that came with the new filter? Anyone done there own oil in a 2015 Golf or Jetta TDI? I looked all over the internet, could not get an answer.

    Thanks for the help.

    What's the part number of the OEM oil filter? There was only 1 large one in mine for the cover top.

    There are oil change descriptions in TDI Wiki if you search.

    It goes on the bottom stem of the filter where it sits in the oil filter housing, bottom of filter.

    Not on the 2015.

    the oil filter cover includes a small plug that lets you drain the oil from the filter, the small o ring is to replace that one.

    the large one, of course, goes on the large filter cover.

    Oil filter with gasket for CRUA, DEJA diesel - 03N 115 562 - £9.20. It looks like it includes the small O ring at the bottom because it doesn't show a separate part number.

    Thank you for the diagrams and photo's. I looked on the internet with no luck. I wanted to stay away from the stealership. I'll replace small o ring next oil change :)

    Thanks again for the help!

    You don't have torque values for the cap and plug, do you?

    The small drain plug that fits into the end of the filter cover has detents which click on the way in. just wondering if there is a torque specified for it.

    with the O ring, small thread size and detents, I would expect it is not very high. The detents should keep the cap installed, and the O ring seals between the outer diameter of the drain plug, and the inner diameter of the plug.
