It either says "Service" or it says "Engine Oil Low".....if low, then follow the procedure to top it back up. Not sure if yours has the electronic dip-stick or not, but our B tells you to add 0.5l etc.Just had a message appear on my car that engine oil low needs change. The service and maintenance contract is up so wondering if this is something I can do myself or is it one for the garage?
Actually depending on what the last service was a basic service could be as little as an oil/filter change, inspection and wash/vac ;-)If its the 'service' message, then yes - most people can happily do it themselves, simply make a note of what you done and keep reciepts.
A basic service would be Oil, Oil Filter and Air filter (on a turbo you want to make sure the filters are clean and good quality aswell as the oil)
If your not comfortable doing it, its typically 1 - 1.5hrs labour - Parts (from ECP) would be circa 60quid for Bosch parts and the correct oil
