    Gear box, Air con console, & aerial questions

    Hi guys wonder if you could help with a few things,

    1. I intend to replace the gearbox oil when my car goes in for a service, roughly how much will this cost ?

    2. My + - tempreture button on the climate control console has been scratched & the black coating was removed is it possible to replace this ?

    3. I ve ordered a new areial base from VAGPARTS, i think i understand the procedure to install the new one. Should i use a sealant to seal it between roof & aerial base if so whats best ?

    Any help appreciated,

    Thanks


    Matt

    Dunno about 2 and 3 but the mechanic I was chatting to at my service last week said the gearbox oil is life long.

    If you were having a problem with the gearbox changing the oil to a different type may make a difference,

    you use no sealer for the aerial just the gasket that is supplied

    Gearbox oil change is simple if you have the tools and somewhere level to do it, 2.6 litres of oil are needed for the S3 and it is worth changing regardless of what Audi say - made a big difference on my car when I changed it to Motul of the same spec. I don't think it should take very long so I guess it's 30 mins + parts if that at a main dealer.

    yep... check out www.opieoils.co.uk and you even get a discount for being an AS.net member, the motul oil is a bit on the pricey side though.
