Also, use a 16.9 oz Poland Spring water bottle to measure out the 0.3L out of the 5L of DSG fluid. 0.3L on the water bottle is right at the bottom line of the label.
The funnel I used kept closing itself, so I had to hold it the entire time After 10min of the fluid not moving, I was like.. da heck. So if you don't see it going down, make sure the funnel didn't close.

Weather was great today for mid/late January and was able to get an oil change + DSG flush cranked out in a little over 1.5hrs, including a trip to Home Depot for the 14mm.

'preciate the tips. Used both and couldn't have gone smoother. Left the fluid in the sun for a little to warm and it filled relatively quick. No where near 45min like i've read...maybe half that.

Its an easy DIY and a great way to save some bucks. I paid my shop $180, fluid/filter included, last time since i didn't want to be bothered. They quoted me $350 this time around. Wasn't having that. Cost me $84 to DIY. $76 for LiquiMoly fluid + filter, and $8 for the 14mm
