Starting in 2015 the 1.8T and 2.0T Volkswagen and Audi Engines are now using a plastic drain plug. This plug locks into the pan with a 1/2 turn and is sealed by an O-ring. This key releases the plastic plug that functions a lot like a radiator petcock. Aluminum and steel weren’t strong enough so they also decided to use a plastic oil pan.(I’m being sarcastic) Read the link below↓ 😉
