Quick question: How do you know how much trans. lubricant to put in? The book says 5mm from the fill hole, but I dont know how to measure that. When I fill it, it oozes all over and I cant tell it it is that full or if that is just runoff. IS there an easier way?

basically that's about it.... what I do since I am a little bit lazy... I fill it on the shifter hole and once it oozes out at the fill hole I put the bolt back on and presto... the tranny is filled :wink:

HOLY SHIT! You can fill it through the shifter hole! I WASTED ALL THAT TIME AND MADE A GIANT MESS TRYING TO PUMP 80W GEAR LUBE THROUGH A HOSE FOR NOTHING!! :mad: :mad:
Now I know...

Owners manual says 2.5 quarts for a W58. I've been able to get in 3 quarts w/ minimal overflowing spillage.

Easy spillfree way is through the shifter hole on the top. Oh yeah, the Yahoo list has known about this method for years... 8) :shock:

Otherwise, it's through the normal fill hole if you have a pump. ALSO!!!! if you are going this way, MAKE SURE that you can loosen the plug for the fill hole BEFORE you remove the drain plug!!!!

lol. Thats what happened to me! I drained it when I replaced my clutch a few months ago, then couldnt get it open to fill it! That was a huge PITA, I wish I had known about the shifter thing.

Here is a dumb question. :oops: By the "shifter hole" you mean inside the car below thw shifter boot cover? Or removing the shifter itself? I really could use this info to save me from that PITA job on the ground next time. Thanks! :p

you basically remove the whole shifter assy out from the tranny and put the tranny fluid in the shifter hole
