1) Remove Intake

6) Hook Special Adapter up
7) Gravity feed 5-6 bottles of gear oil in
8) Start Vehicle
9) VAGCOM ATF Temperature
10) Shift through PRNDS
11) 35*C, Shut off car
12) Drain residual run off
13) Remove Special Tool
14) Torque Drain plug with new washer on.

Basically....an oil change with a little finess Am I right?
7. Its 4.5 Liters of DSG fluid.

Best write up on this. The main issue is the "tool" because of its cost ($200). But you can drill out a drain plug ($30) and do it that way i suppose.

I'm gonna get the official tool for it. It'll pay for itself after one DIY flush

Lots of good info here, I think I'm going to get a set of ramps and start doing this myself as soon as I do my last oil change.

Maybe they gave him the 40k service early and he will have to pay for the next one. My dealer is taking care of all my intervals up to 40k doing my oil changes at every5k maybe he got lucky too
