    I changed mine to sytheticy stuff as recomended, it needs a special tool thingy like a huge torx with a hole in it, cost me about 15 squids. Worthwhile tho, better gearchange now
    The tool is used for the filler and the drain plugs

    With an automatic gearbox, it's a little more involved, but doable. If any of you have autos, post here first, and I can show you pics.

    Re: gearbox oil

    According to the shop manual, you do use 75w90 synthetic. The factory already put synthetic in though. There is no recommended change interval, except for peace of mind.

    Here is how much you need...
    01E (6 spd Manual AWD) = 2.3 liters
    01H (6 spd AWD Rr final drive) = 1.9 liters
    Total to do both = 4.2 liters
    01A (5 spd Manual AWD) = 2.75 liters
    01R (5 spd AWD Rr final drive) = 1.9 liters
    Total to do both = 4.65 liters
    012/01W (FWD) = 2.25 liters

    Remember that trans and rr drive are seperate.

    I took this info from the AESIS(Audi USA repair manual)

    If you want amounts for automatice, email/pm me.
