    3.0 tdi ATF change

    Hi all


    Re- Q7 ATF change on 3.0tdi



    Going to have the ATF changed , next couple of weeks.


    according to service schedule it should be changed every 40000 miles.


    have full history with the car , and according to services invoices (all audi main dealer) it has never been changed !!(currentmileage approaching 80000)


    so my question is----surely Audi main dealer wouldn't miss the opportunity to,do this and charge for it , but obviously did !!!


    i am experiencing no issues with the gear box......


    What would happen if I don't change it?




    BTW been quoted £200.00 apprx to do this (9 ltr of fluid and labour)





    Many thanks

    Update , had the following email from AUDI regarding the ATF change .......



    Dear *************

    Thank you for your email addressed to AUDI AG, regarding the gearbox oil in your Audi Q7.

    I can confirm that the Tiptronic gearbox fitted to your Audi Q7 is a sealed unit and is not part of a service schedule. The gearbox oil should last the lifetime of the vehicle and should only be replaced if a repair is required.

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind Regards
