Changing DSG oil on 3.2 ** does bevel box oil need changing?
Hi all,
Almost done with maintenance on my newly aquired 04 TT 3.2 with 64K miles. I've done fuel filter, haldex oil/filter, rear diff oil, air filter, brake fluid, spark plugs and green coolant sensor (yeah I've been busy). I plan on keeping TT at least 5 years, and want to be down to only needing oil changes.

I ordered DSG oil change kit from ECS, got the 6262 tool coming from someother place.

While down there, I want to change the bevel box oil, but I was under there today and couldn't see the fill hole. I think I need to remove the heat shield. I also can't find what oil to use, the bentley says it's lifetime fluid, and it only shows rear diff on fluid chart. What oil should I use? Or should I just leave it alone? My rear diff had some metal shavings and was rather dark / the plug had black residue --it said it was lifetime fluid.

I just changed the DSG oil by draining and filling from the single hole >>>
at bottom of the trans. Remember, you need the VAG-COM to correctly measure the level of the oil after filling.

?? Not the car in your sig, I guess (a 225)?

?? The car in the sig is a 3.2 (rear emblem) and the car with the bumper off is a 3.2 (engine cover)

Yah, I'm pretty sure I can handle the DSG oil change...only problem I see is keeping the car level...

My question was about the bevel box, which holds .9 litres but not sure about the oil. It a small box right behind the DSG.

Ah, there are 2 in the sig (I skipped over teh first, and read the second "2002 Raven Blk 225")

Should be the exact same internals as the 225. So either OEM manual transmission fluid, or
something like Redline MT-90 or the Amsoil equivalent.

hijack... did your rear diff noise go away? or watever noise that was from your last service?

MCPaudiTT - DEFCON 1 10-25-2007 08:20 AM

It was actually the transmission/bevel box. It is much better now that I put
another 1.3 l of fluid in, but I think I did some damage, as it is still there. I may tray Amsoil if it is thicker than MT-90.

Purely a bonehead move on my part. I am glad I got on it after only 1 day.

Cruzad3r 10-25-2007 08:31 AM

ok... how much did you use for your rear diff? also wat brand? i used redline for the tranny and
bevel and i filled until it leaked out... i didnt hear any noise after i'm done ... tranny is next on my list...seeing that it's easy to do, why not do it :)
