The ATF temperature must not be more than approx. 30 °C at start of test.

‒ Bring ATF to test temperature.

Test temperature: 35 °C to 45 °C

‒ → Remove ATF level plug from the oil pan (arrow).

The ATF present in the overflow pipe runs out.

ATF drips out of drilling:

ATF need not be topped up.

‒ Fit new seal to plug and tighten to 15 Nm. Herewith is the ATF check completed.

If only the ATF present in the overflow pipe runs out of drilling:

Replenishing ATF

‒ Lever off plug securing cap -arrow- with a screwdriver. When doing this the cap locking device will be damaged, therefore always renew cap.

‒ → Pull plug out of filler pipe.

On some gearboxes a cap with a spring retainer is installed. This cap can be used again.

‒ → Fill with ATF using V.A.G 1924, until ATF runs out of level hole -arrow-.

Warning!

If the ATF level is too high or too low it will adversely affect the operation of the gearbox.

‒ → Fit new seal to level plug -arrow 1- and tighten to 15 Nm.

‒ Fit sealing plug on filler pipe until the spring retainer lock locates, or

‒ Fit plug on filler pipe and secure with a new cap -arrow 2-.

‒ Lock cap.

Warning!

Always renew cap. The cap secures the plug.

You can get the temp accurately if you have Vagcom but just run it around for 10 mins and you wont be far off

An I right in saying that these gearboxes have a filter in the sump? If so it would be a good idea to change it if your changing the ATF. Usually makes a huge difference.

#15 is the only thing closest to a filter listed

It could very well be that, oil strainer sounds about right. To change it you will have to drop all the old fluid out then remove the sump, then unbolt the filter/strainer and refit the new one. when you buy the filter/strainer it should come with a new gasket. Clean the two surfaces and put on the new gasket, refit the sump and then fill with fresh fluid.
