I've been doing some research on an upcoming Tiptronic ATF/Oil change. I've found the following how-to and had some questions for those of you who've tackled the job.
I'm a little unclear on the fill process. Is there no fill port on this transmission at the side or top? If filling from the bottom I'm assuming I pump in the required amount of transmission fluid (3 litres) via the tool they have listed then pop back in the drain plug quickly. Is that about right? Do I really need to leave the tool in and plug it while I start the engine and shift in to all the gears for 10 seconds. Can't I just throw in three litres in put the plug in start it and shift into gear to cycle the fluid then pull the plug to drain the over fill with the engine running?
I plan on purchasing this kit from Blau Parts to perform the maintenance:
