Customer Question
Hi, my service light...

Hi, my service light alerted me

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

No, only "gearbox needs service: Checked the fluid, it was low.

Mechanic's Assistant: Not a problem. You can work with the Volvo Mechanic to figure that out. What is the model/year of your Volvo?

2005 s60 t

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S60 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Had the gearbox serviced about 5000km ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just if I can refill and what fluid to use
