    Hi
    i have finally purchased a 2.5tdi quattro and was wondering if it would be beeficial to change the gearbox oil on the triptronic box ?
    The car has 150k full dealer history and drives like a dream.#

    thanks in advance

    I have an allroad 2.5tdi with auto box. the box is supposed to be maintaince free with life long oil inside. After having just had to have a new gearbox fitted I would definatly recommend getting the oil changed along with new filter. Its a chance to see how healthy the box is by checking the colour of the oil. Need access to Vag-com/VCDS in order to fill it correctly as the oil level is crucial and it is checked at a specific temperature (measured on VCDS) when refilling.
