I had to change the rear gearbox seal so I thought I'd do a little How To, hopefully it will help some others

Nice one ill be showing this to my garage
My rs6 is on the lift as we speak having a new cambelt and I noticed the same fluid leaking in the same place, I thought it was gearbox oil! I have the seal already so I'll be getting the correct oil now I know what it is. I have an engine oil leak from the oil cooler pipe beneath the oil filter housing which I need to sort next

Just a quick fettle Ron, I am having judder boost issues mid throttle and it feels like it's holding back, previous owner put a quantum map on so having that removed and a proper job done
