  Caution

Risk of electrical corrosion.

  • There must not be any transmission fluid (MTF) in the connector area.
  • Do NOT disconnect the connector -2-.

  Note

When removing the oil pump, the transmission drains abruptly.

- Remove the bolts -arrows- and remove the oil pump -1- and secure with wire so that it does not fall.

- Drain the transmission fluid (MTF).

  Caution

Risk of damaging the transmission.

Without any or with too little manual transmission fluid (MTF) inside the transmission:

  • Do not start the engine.
  • Do not tow the vehicle.

  Note

  • Worn out manual transmission fluid (MTF) can stain the transmission fluid filter housing.
  • Clean debris from the sealing surfaces.

- Remove the plug -arrow- for the right inspection and fill hole on the transmission housing with the Torx Socket - T60 -T40087-.

- Slowly fill transmission fluid (MTF) using Pressurized Gearbox Oil Filler Kit -VAS6617-.

  • Transmission fluid (MTF) specification. Refer to the Parts Catalog.

- Repeat the procedure gradually every 15 seconds, until the transmission fluid is 2 mm under the lower edge of the inspection and fill hole.

  Note

It is important to follow the waiting period to make sure the various oil spaces in the transmission are filled equally.
