Default 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.

Thanks.

Default 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.

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.

Default 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.

Default 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.
