02+ MB tip trans fluid replacement procedure and capacity


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

does anyone have a reference for the transmission fluid swap on 02-04 722.6 quipped cars? The MB procedure calls for the transmission at 80degrees celsius, but I am not sure how many liters of fluid it will take. Any insight would be appreciated!

02 4s tiptronic

I'm a bit hesitant to go off of the mb specs, i understand porsche used their own casting for the trans and presumably the fluid capacity is different.

I did find the mb part numbers for the fluid, it is slightly cheaper (10.xx per liter) as opposed to the porsche rebranded version.

On a MY02 Tiptronic

Change quantity: approx. 4.5 liters

You should follow the procedure here

That DIY guide is for the earlier ZF trans, not the 02+ mercedes benz one. The mbenz transmission call for checking the fill level and 25C and 80C.

Porsche states in their service manual (for MY2002 and newer) -- "The ATF temperature must be between 30 degrees C and 40 degrees C. An ATC inspection at an insufficient ATF temperature causes over-filling and an inspection at an excessive ATF temperature causes insufficient filling."

Good enough for me, they probably calibrated the amount needed to that temperature. Thanks a ton for the quick feedback!

Just so that I understand it correctly, 02+ tiptronic take less fluid (~4.5liters) as opposed to the earlier ZF tiptronics (~6.6liters)
