not a DIY thingATF, FillingSpecial tools, testers and auxiliary items required ¤Torque wrench (V.A.G 1331)¤Used oil collection and extraction unit (V.A.G 1782 )¤Vehicle diagnosis, testing and information system ( VAS 5051)¤Drip tray for workshop hoist (VAS 6208)¤Adapter for filling oil (VAS 6262)¤Adapter (VAS 6262/2)With engine "running", install adapter for filling oil (VAS 6262/2) hand-tight. Add 1 l of ATF.Pull off adapter for oil filling (VAS 6262) at quick-release connection and check:If ATF now flows out of hole in adapter:ATF does not need topping off. Drain ATF until it drips.Install new seal to plug and tighten to 15 Nm. This completes ATF check.If no ATF drips out: Add another liter => [ ATF, Filling ] See: ATF, FillingCAUTION!An ATF level which is too low or too high will impair the function of the transmission. But if the transmission was 2 liters low, it must be carefully inspected. There is probably a "major" leak.
