how to drain oil on 2006 beetle tdi?

PLEASE HELP,I NEED TO DRAIN OIL ON MT VW BEETLE TDI.ITS 2006 MODEL.
WHERE IS DRAIN PLUG.AND IS T DIFFICULT TO DRAIN OIL.

OK.
Its not at all difficult to drain/change oil.
Take the bottom  engine cover off and you will see  the oil filter,  it is on top of engine by the oil dipstick.
The procedure is as follows :---
Remove the bottom engine cover. Drain the oil into a pan by removing the drain plug in the oil pan as you would on any other car. REmove the cover on top of the engine. The oil filter is located next to thte dipstick in a black cylinder . Remove the top cover from the cylinder and remove the oil filter. Replace the filter and Oring. Tighten the cover. Reinstall the drain plug, do not overtighten and strip out the threads. This is a common mistake by quick lube businesses. You must use 505.01 oil such as Motul. This is only available at the dealer. You will void your warranty if you don't. Also keep all your receipts of oil changes in case you have warranty problems. It should take a 5 liter bottle of motul for the oil change.

THANK YOU.
