In order to keep the Bentley Arnage running in top shape, it is important to adhere to the factory’s recommended service schedule. My 2004 Bentley Arnage T will be due for its 60k mile service soon. I will document that service on the YouTube channel. Please note that I have compiled this schedule specifically for my model and trim.
This information was compiled using the Bentley Arnage Service Schedules and Record Book, the advice of my mechanic, and the twin turbo 6.75 liter Bentley Arnage T, Arnage R, & Arnage RL 2002-2006 Service Kits available on FlyingSpares.com. The kits are also for the Bentley Azure and Bentley Brooklands. To verify if this service schedule applies to your vehicle, check your owner manual, service record book, specialist or dealer.
