I need to fill in the engine oil

For information on which oil can be used, please refer to the owner's manual, check the label in the engine compartment or the driver's door pillar.

Most manufacturers recommend using a viscosity of 5W30 or 0W30 for a single fill-up of up to 0.5 liters (the brand is not so important but the specification should always be followed) - the back of the oil bottle shows the specification for the vehicle:

ŠKODA AUTO diesel engines - VW 507.00, VW 509.00 ACEA C3
SKODA AUTO petrol engines - VW 504.00, VW 508.00 ACEA A3/ACEAB4
MERCEDES BENZ petrol and diesel - MB 229.51
BMW petrol and diesel - LL04
RENAULT petrol and diesel - RN 0700, RN0720
OPEL petrol and diesel - GM DEXOS 2
FIAT petrol and diesel - FIAT 9.55535-S1
PEUGEOT petrol and diesel - B71 2296, B71 2290
FORD petrol and diesel - FORD WSS-M2C

The oil level must not be outside the area of the upper and lower lines on the oil dipstick, otherwise there is a risk of damage to the engine and exhaust system. Never postpone the oil fill-up.

If you’re not sure about how to proceed for filling up the oil, please find here the closest contractual servicing partner.

What is the servicing interval?

Always follow the instructions on the board computer. Most manufacturers use a variable service interval where the vehicle evaluates the condition, engine oil degradation and may require a separate stop for a service inspection and engine oil change (short distances, city traffic, frequent starts, ...). Under ideal operating conditions, both services are carried out at the same time, usually once a year or after a prescribed mileage depending on the type of vehicle and engine.

If the difference between the oil change and the regular service is less than 3000 km or 2 months, the service can be carried out at the same time.

If you have a reason for an earlier service (e.g.: a longer trip abroad), you can make an appointment up to 3000 km or 2 months before the scheduled date. However, never exceed the service interval.

I need to exchange the battery in the key

Always follow the operating manual for the vehicle.

If you’re not sure about how to proceed with the battery change, please visit our servicing partner; they will usually make the battery change on the spot.
