Default 2014 Q5 TDI Transmission Fluid/Filter

Fellow compression addicts,


After a TON of research (you have to search hard for P/N's and compatibility--(BTW I think that's on purpose)) I figured I'd pass on some info/prices to change the fluid/filter in the 8 speed Triptronic transmission (0BK).

Found the best deal on GREEN ATF on EBAY. I got febi Bilstein Nr 39095 for just just under $19 a liter (9 required).

Found the best deal for the filter/gasket/hardware kit 0BK-398-009-A-M103 at https://www.pelicanparts.com/ (I'm not affiliated with them at all). You have your choice of three different brands. Anyway, great prices and free shipping from Los Angeles, Ca. I'm in Las Vegas so it was delivered the next day.

Nothing on these German machines are cheap. I'm guessing if the Dealer did this it'd be $$$$. Hope this helps someone out there.

Thanks,I usually do most of my maintenance but with these transmissions it my understanding that the fluid needs to go in at a certain temp for a accurate fill as there isn't a trans dipstick.

Av8R, did you get the fluid and filter change done? How many litres did the 8 speed need?
I read others used 6 to 7 litres.
Did you need 9 litres?

4-5L with a pan drop. You will not be able to get 9L out when doing a filter change, the kits that come with 9 will leave you

Ravenol 8HP is what i used, which is specifically approved for 8hp trans.

I would recommend others to use this or the ZF lifeguard fluid.

I tried Redline D6 ATF and it made the transmission act a little weird.

Thanks for info,
I'm going with the Ravenol 75W- 140 GL5 for Q5 transfer case, apparently VW ok at cost $25/ litre, it has a friction modifier.
Lifeguard 8 and the Melye transmission filter gasket kit for transmission.
