    Hi all,

    My auto 3.0 tdi has done 108k miles now, and I can't find any record of it having a gearbox oil change.
    Am I right in thinking this should be done every 40k miles or so?

    I'm thinking of getting it done just to be on the safe side - any views/ideas on price?

    Cheers

    ok I think they are a sealed unit then, no oil changes needed. In fact, reading peoples experiences of when they have gone ahead and changed it seemed to cause problems after a short time. Probably due to incorrect fluid or under/over filling, maybe stirring up the metal fragments that are bedded to the magnets.
