    DSG 7 speed Oil change - Golf MK7 1.6 TDi (2013)

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to figure out if my 7 speed DSG of my 2013 Golf MK7 1.6 TDi needs an oil and filter change every 40k miles.

    Back in 2017, my dealer carried out a “DSG Service” which cost £140 but there are no details of what work was carried out so it’s not clear if this involves an oil change. Car was at 63K miles.
    No other work has been done on the gearbox since then, today the car has 108k miles.

    I got some pictures showing the gearbox, I couldn’t find any filter housing.

    I would appreciate the help.

    Car VIN: WVWZZZAUZDW072111
    Engine No.: CLHA047760

    Thanks all!

    The 7 speed DSG don't have a service interval they are sealed for life. The 6 speed which is ever 40,000 miles oil and filter.

    What is the transmission/gearbox code of the data sticker? Data Sticker/Options Sticker and Engine Codes

    You have a PMZ code gearbox from the DQ200 range, also known as an 0CW type, which is dry clutch so no fluid.

    The wet clutch DQ500 used in cars like the TTRS is excellent and can take huge abuse, the DQ250 used in other larger engined models is also good but can’t take as much tuning power increase and WHY they use this in the Golf 7 R but the Arteon with the same engine gets the DQ500 is beyond me.
