Change-
  • Oil filter
  • Oil
  • Spark plugs
  • Air filter

Then if your feeling it-
  • Replace dizzy
  • Fuel filter
  • HT leads

Whats the mileage of the car? What does the service history say? Is it due a timing belt......Bit more detail and I'm sure you'll get the info you need. If your just planning a basic service then follow the advice above

you may want to do..
>coolant
>pollen filter
>fuel filter
>brake fluid
>PAS fluid

you may want some ramps to get under the car, container for the oil
oil filter removal tool!
new drain plug maybe needed.

thats just the basics, dont think i have missed anything?

pollen filter is under the scuttle panel where yur wipers are, easy to get off, and the filter is on passenger side. easy.

fuel filter i THINK! is near the fuel tank under the car.

Fuel filter is on the drivers side just infront of the rear wheel.

A garage service is normally:

Plugs (unless high mileage plugs)
Oil + Filter (never one without the other)
Air filter
Pollen filter (if applicable)
Screen wash
Brake fluid
Belt checks
PAS fluid
Engine coolant
Grease doors up
Tyre pressure
Fuel filter (if needed)
Golf MK3 1.8 auto and I didn't pay a grand for the "priveledge" :grin:, auto windows all round and a AC. Oh and I've got a luggage net you pricks!

Does that make my willy look bigger?

Oh yeah it's called Helda or something....
