I just looked for this and came up with a lot of different specs. So I called my Porsche guy and he didn't know..... This is critical. I'd contact a Volkswagen dealer; maybe say you're considering having the work done there, and ask. Or contact a local VW Owners Club; they should have members with similar cars and can provide exact specifications.
