    Default service list 2006 vec c

    hi all

    although the garage i bought the vec from 3 month ago stamped the service book and told me they had serviced it its apparent after opening the air filter box that they didnt, chocked with leaves and a filthy filter i think ill do it myself

    as this is my 1st ever diesel i could do with a list of whats needed, obviously oil and filter so what else, car is on 56k and is a 1.9cdti

    also where do you lot buy your parts for servicing

    cheers everyone

    Go back and tell 'em to service it

    Oil. Oil filter. Air filter. Fuel filter. Pollen filter.

    And depending on age / mileage... Brake fluid. Timing belt. Water pump.

    Don't forget to check brakes etc as part of the service

    10k - oil and filter, drain water from diesel filter and i usually replace about every 40k on my diesel cars. petrol vecs the fuel filter says 40k in manual dunno what diesel vec is actually specced to.
    20k - air filter but always check it and change sooner if its got excessively bad
    pollen filter i just keep and eye on

    I was under the impression the 1.9 CDTI had intervals of 20K miles / 2 years
    The OP has advised a 2006, so assuming the most recent was the interim (third) service, which is just oil change and pollen filter

    On the plus side, Masterfit have now uploaded a Service planner to their website, and the 3.0 V6 CDTI is also finally on it!

    idk mine is a petrol. lots of modern cars can be put on long interval servicing, VWs which i came from when i got my vec often have this on passats and stuff. but you need to be using longlife oil etc. even then i wouldnt do it, i change the oil in all my vehicles much sooner than the manufacturer recommends. 20k on the same oil cant be good even if it is longlife oil. so the interval would be 10k probably on normal service schedule and 20k on longlife schedule.

    Have you got a link to that please? I'm looking at doing my next service myself when I've finally worked out what needs doing!

    Put your registration and mileage (although the mileage is actually irrelevant)
    The next page confirms your vehicle
    The third page lists the work type you can select
    Click on the information next to each Service type for full details
    Interim - odd services, oil change only, other filters are optional
    Main - even services, oil change, pollen filter, other filters are optional

    You can obtain the full specification from a dealership, which confirms the pollen filter is included in the Interim Service, and the Air Filter is included in the Main Service
