We use a machine here, hooked up to the cooler lines, works great. We use Pentosin branded ATF1 (a golden colored synthetic ATF, same stuff the 01M/01P uses, as well as some other ZF transmissions... you can also use ZF's Lifeguard fluid, but it costs more).

I have a quick question about my trunk "gas springs" replacements on 04 Passat TDI and my 99 1/2 Jetta......

They seem to use the same exact gas springs to open the trunk. But here is the odd part, on the jetta they installed with the shock body attached to the trunk itself with inner shaft pushing down twords the car.....

While on the Passat the body of the shock ("gas spring " as they seem to be called by the sellers I am looking at) is mounted to the body of the car with the center that pushes the trunk open is mounted to the trunk itself...?....

Two things,

1) are they currently mounted correctly ?

2) are they interchangeable ?

Thanks for any insight on this....
More diesels than I can list
