NO - the oil filling hole is your only indication. Maybe there is a way to monitor this via PIWIS but i assume you don't have one.
Thanks a lot for the info. I didn't do it yet - my dealer (the only 1 in the country) said to me that same oil should be used for both gearbox and clutches. Since this contradicts all information that we know - obviously they don't know what they're doing and instead of good it will do only damage. I plan to visit them and review together the info they have.
Thanks !!! I will check with the local dealer what are the actual costs and see what will we do...
is this ^ ^ ^ ^ correct?
If above is true - replacing oil filter makes clutches oil replacement from 150$ to 150$+480$. And this is materials only - labor costs will grow significantly too. I'm really wondering how important is to replace the filter in a car that have reached 6 years but is very far from the recommended 60,000 miles mark...
So to get PDK clutches oil filter replaced - there is a need it to replace a pan of the gearbox - which leads to replacing gearbox oil too - correct?
My car is 6 years old and want to replace the PDK clutch oil. To replace the oil filter - the whole pan should be replaced. Is this pan serves clutches compartment only? Visually it looks to me like it covers the gearbox/cogs part - if it's true than gearbox/cogs oil also has to be changed. So what's the situation with it?
