I'm considering changing the gear oil on my Tiptronic tranny (-98 A6 A/Q
2.8 - 77kkm). Haven't discovered any problems - just a precaution.
Local dealer tells me that there's no official changing interval and that
they only change it "if the gearbox start slipping" or on other "symptoms".
If you are planning to DIY be careful to read past threads on this.
There is no way to check the fluid level without a VAG system.
No filler on the top of trans.
17mm allen wrench to remove plate in bottom to fill by pumping the oil
up / over a wall thingy.
If you drain the oil BE SURE to measure how much you remove to replace
the same amount with the recommended oil.
This is NOT something that I would let someone mess with unless the are

Thanks for the tip. I've seen the threads and decided that this oil change
would be done by the dealer (I'm far too lazy anyway...).
I was more thinking of the necessity of changing the oil at all, since Audi
don't recommend it. I guess it won't hurt, but is there any point in doing
it at all?
