    Touareg oil change

    Hi,

    I am planning to change the oil of my 2015 Touareg R-Line 3.0 TDI-CR on my own for the first time.
    Oil no problem, I will get the 10 litres of Castrol Edge 5-30 VW507 as per OEM. original oil filter and new ring. I think I need just over 8 litres so I will have a couple spare.

    I will suck the oil instead than opening the drain. Do you think a pump like this will work?

    I have a 20 litres container to collect the oil.
    Or should I spend more and get the PELA extractor or similar?
    Also the oil dip stick tube seems very small. I hole the kit provided will be small enough. the Touareg dipstick seem smaller then usual.

    Any suggestions?

    Spend more and get a Pela or an electric pump otherwise you will be absolutely knackered doing the change.

    EDIT: I don't know how small the tube is, but if it is like my Mk5 Golf 1.6 FSI tube then it won't be possible to do the extraction.

    thanks. an electric pump is not really an option since the Touareg has the battery hidden under the passenger seat. Pela or similar is a safe option.
    I have to check the size of the pipe. Worst scenario I will have to buy a smaller tube but I have seen videos extracting the Touareg oil with a standard kit.
