    Default What makes up a service?

    My 1.8 vec is a due a service very soon and i'm considering doing it myself.
    It had a basic service last year from the dealer, so i want to give it a full one this time around.

    What makes up a full service and how easy/hard is it to do?
    I've done basic oil, filters and plug changes in the past on my previous cars.

    you need to post your engine size / type, your mileage and car age to get proper service schedule advice.
