I can't remember were I read it but isn't there a special procedure you're meant to follow to drain, or is it to refill? As I understand it the manual tranny is literally laying on its side and filling it till the oil spills out is not the correct way?



Not that I'm going to adhere but I also read the tranny oil type is meant to be good for the life of the vehicle, or does the service manual indicate a fluid change is necessary?

These cars you can fill until it spills out if the car is level. You may be thinking of DSG transmission? Yes this fluid is technically "lifetime" aka 100k miles but I chose to change it early due to sitting and shift quality

You are probably right aboot the DSG confusion.


I hear ya. I'm of the same mind set. I'll be changing mine out soon for the same reason with only 30,000 miles

On the BRMs with the 5sp manual trans, the trans is installed/bolted to the engine at an angle.
The fill hole is pointing down, and if you fill the trans until fluid flows out, the trans will be under filled. You either fill the trans off the car and level, or when on the car, fill using the fill hole until fluid flows out, then remove the reverse switch, and fill the remaining amount (what the manual calls for a full transmission fill).

I have changed my trans fluid at 35'000 km (due to leaky seal on the CV flange).
It looked like that too.
