    Hello
    All you guru's here's one for you, i own a a6 mutitronic on an 08 plate is there a way i can find out if my gearbox can be serviced as i have been told that some are sealed for life.

    Cheers in anticipation

    Check in your service log or enquire at dealer... looking at your past posts you viewed a 2.0 TDi 2006 so I'm assuming you bought a 2.0 TDi 2008?

    Just to add some clarity, it is the Tiptronic boxes (i.e. traditional auto on the quattro models) that are "sealed for life".

    I have a tiptronic box... Audi suggest that but ZF the manufacturers/mechanics/enthusiasts still change...

    I had mine done at 75k... if I'd owned car from new then IIRC ZF recommend every 40k...

    More info...

    Link 1:- audipages A8 Automatic Transmission Servicing

    Link 2:- Tiptronic ATF, transmission fluid change/flush - Articles

    Setup for gearbox in A6 is pretty similar to above links... from what I read somewhere the Tiptronic in the A6 was derived from one used in the A8...

    Link 3:- Tiptronic oil change !!

    I had tip oil changed when chain rattle fixed... most enthusiast seem to be getting it done from posts I've seen...

    If you do a google for ZF 6HP19 or Audi 09L there are plenty of PDF's with good data...

    I have a 2008 2.7tdi Quattro Le-Mans and have just had a service close to 40,000mls. Initially my dealer said the Tiptronic transmition oil should be changed but then they changed their mind and said it was sealed for life.
