    Changing ATF in 3.0tdi

    Hi all


    Going to have the ATF changed (along with other service bits) , 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

    Hi all


    Been looking at SSP 363 -and on google regarding auto transmission ,

    SSP 363 says the gearboxes are sealed for life , other sites so you should change the ATF in the gear box.

    getting a bit confused

    CAN ANY ONE GIVE ME A DEFINITIVE ANSWER ,whether the ATF,should be changed or Not

    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    You would be best off changing fluid,and filter just to make sure any debris is removed that may cause future problems.

    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
