Good write up. Did you have any debris / metallic bits in the drained oil?


I did not find any metallic bit or any other debris just not clean.


Cool! I'm looking at doing mine this weekend and just read in the workshop manual that both plug washers should be replaced.. I'm assuming (?) you didn't as its not mentioned in the write up but just wandering if you have noticed any slight weep at the drain plug on yours? While I'm here does anyone know the part number for the washers please?

Didn't replace mine, and it doesn't leak. The washers are aluminium, which can be used again, if not over compressed the first time. 2009 Rimini Red SE, its getting there.

I did mine over the weekend and thought I'd share my observations for others in the future.
Initially tried to do it with car flat and wheels on full lock as there is enough space... but couldn't get enough leverage to crack the level / filler plug, so took wheel off and managed to crack it but it was bloody tight and I'd say definitely more than 35nM. With the car still jacked up way above level on gearbox side I removed the filler plug and to my surprise a load of oil came out maybe 200ml so it had been overfilled before but god knows how, is there another fill point they use in the factory during build?
So then cracked the drain plug and put wheel back on lowered car while draining. Drain plug back in and then filled with 1.9ltr oil with wheels on full lock. Didn't use new copper washers and no subsequent leaks.

Did you open the drain plug with the fluid temperature at around 60 C and with the engine running, If not then that 200ml needs to go back and recheck according to the book

The fluid temperature is only relevant for automatic transmission, not the manual gearbox. Wink 2009 Rimini Red SE, its getting there.

You are quite right I have had auto boxes on the brain for the last four years

No the oil was cold. I put the specified 1.9 ltr of new oil in with car flat and level.
