Tiptronic ATF and filter change

Recommended Posts

99 Cabrio C2

Has anyone done a fluid, filter, and gasket change in a Tiptronic? If so, is it a DIY job or dealer? The dealer wants $295, and it sounds incredulous. I have experience doing the maintenance in Volvos, and it was a simple task. Thank you

You will need an ATF pump and the proper fittings as the Tiptronic is filled using a pump. The manual also says to use the PST2 be used to monitor the temperature so that the filling is accurate. The Tip is "charged" under pressure much like you would an air conditioning system.

Is there an ATF filter to change? If so, where is it? 


You will need a filter, gasket and new sealing rings. Like most automatic transmissions you have to remove the ATF pan to remove the filter (about 27 bolts I think). When installing the new filter you need to thinly coat gasket on the suction collar of the new ATF filter with Vaseline and then install filter.In a Tip there are also four magnets that need to be removed, cleaned, and then correctly positioned on the seams of the (cleaned) ATF pan for reassembly.
