Gearbox oil

Post by Bazzad88 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:57 pm

Hi can anyone recommend a good gearbox oil? What is the capacity of the gearbox or is it a case of fill it until it starts coming out of the fill hole? Thanks

I got the genuine stuff from TPS. Part no. G 060 726 A2. If not google that number and you might get an alternative.

It’s a fill to spill so as you say it’ll pour out when full. I think it was about 4 litres mine took but I can’t remember for sure.
