    Hi All, yesterday have just had my gearbox oil changed, It's a 07 reg A6 2.7 TDI with 6 speed tiptronic gearbox, gearbox code JMK, done 85k miles. I did dropped/clean the oil pan and change the filter, however after the filling procedure i have found that only 4.9L ATF have been filled in (including spillage), compared to the drained dirty oil at about 4.4L, that make sense.

    However a bit search all said that it requires 6-8L to complete the change. Did i missed something? The car drives smoother after the change.

    Just a bit more, the ATF is the yellow-ish color type and oil pan have 13 bolts not 23 bolts.

    Many thanks

    Hi, without specialist equipment you'll never fully remove all the fluid. The capacity is around 9lts iirc.
    Dropping the pan generally removes about 4.5lts. If you topped up using the correct procedure, then the amount you put in should be fine.
    Just out of curiosity what fluid did you use? These transmissions are very susceptible to damage if the wrong fluid is used.

    ELSA says removing the pan means 8 litres comes out

    I assume this is the 6hp19a box?
    I dropped my pan last year and accurately measured 4.5lts. All that Ive read points to similar quantities.

    Forgotten to note down the gearbox number. But that make sense if rowdy-999 also have nearly the same amount. I used febi nr 29738 ATF and the seller supplied 8 liters with filter and gasket. The parts are correct apart from having 3L left for next change.

    I also replace the normal magnetic to strong neodymium iron boron ones, hopefully it's better in holding the metals in the pan.

    I am told by ZF that you get a lot more out when you also drop mechatronics unit, is this correct ?

    I have the same car in a bpp engine code. Avant 2.7 tdi quattro so I also have 6HP19A.

    Can anyone check if I have a metal pan with 23 bolts?

    I too would like to know which gearbox fluid the car left the factory with. I think lifeguard 6, but ZF actually say it would have to be replaced with lifeguard 8. I simply want to swap with the same as it came. I know that the box has never been serviced so I ain't changing that oil with anything fancy

    Stick with LG6, I doubt LG8 was even around when the gearbox was built.

    Get down and take a look, 23bolt and 13 bolts have quite a differences, you may also see the bolts position designed in the gearbox does not appear in the sump pan. 23 bolts version in between bolts thats about 5cm, 13 version circia 10cm
