1 Check the transmission fluid level with the engine warm and idling, with the selector lever in position N (neutral) and the handbrake firmly applied.

2 With the vehicle on a level surface, withdraw the level dipstick and wipe it clean with a lint-free cloth. Reinsert it and withdraw again. The level must be between the two marks on the dipstick (see illustration). If not, top-up the level through the dipstick tube using the specified fluid.

3 If much topping-up is required, carry out a check for leaks. If no external leaks are visible, check the final drive oil level. If this is found to be too high, it is probable that the transmission fluid is leaking internally into the final drive casing and if this is the case, it must be attended to without delay by your VW dealer.

4 The difference in quantity of fluid between the maximum and minimum marks on the fluid level dipstick is 0.4 litre.

5 On completion, insert the dipstick and switch off the engine.
