      Hi guys,
      i've searched the forum but i just can't find wich oil should i use for my DSG. I'm close to oil change and i want to know exactly wich oils are compatible.

      I tried searching but coudn't find anything. I dont know wich cars have the same gearbox so i only searched in audi.

      Hope to get some help.

      Regards.

      I've never changed DSG oil, but I would make sure the oil is specifically Direct Shift Gearbox oil like this Pentosin:

      Yep. That Pentosin is the stuff. Same fluid that the dealer sells as well, they just put it in a VW bottle.

      Great, thanks guys.
      Just one more question, is there any special procedure to change it? Anyone made a DIY about it?
      and how much do i need?
      Thanks.

      Somebody needs a service manual

      There is a special procedure, and a special fill tool. Search, it's not hard and the fill tool is easy to make. You do need full-feature VCDS to check the fluid level though, and that can't be substituted.

      I don't work for ECS, but this kit would seem to have everything needed, except for the tool. The kit with the tool is about $200 more, and is out of stock.

      Search for Bentley Service Manual. I think Ross-Tech sells them beside their VCDS, as do other vendors. If you're looking for a free manual, that's probably not going to happen. Any way you cut it, you need full registered VCDS to verify fluid level after you're done.

      Several people have DIY's out there though. Google FTFW:

      although they have little differerences, they all all use internal combustion engines, they may do some things a little different, but, if you can turn a wrench and read a manual, a porche or beamer might be prettier and more high tech, but again, it's just a machine.

      Sure man, but when you spend 35K in a car you dont expect to get several failures in different parts of the car. My BMW had a lot!

      Anyway, anyone know where to get the bentley for the TT MK2 in PDF?

      Regards.
