Hi, wondered if anyone could help me with the following:

From previous posts (and your help) I can see that to check my gearbox oil I have to remove the front right wheel - then remove the level bung with the 8mm allen key - the fluid shoud then be level with the hole right?

Once I have done that I may decide that it needs topping up - or that I will change the oil completely.

I suppose I just go to the SAAB dealer and ask for "gearbox oil for my 2000 9-5 Aero" to get the right fluid?

To top it up - I just remove the filling bung - at the top and use some sort of funnel and pipe system to pour the oil in?

If I want to empty the gearbox of oil first - I simple remove the drain plug at the bottom and allow the oil to drain out - and then replace the bung and fill from the top again.

Does anyone have to hand - or know how much gearbox oil it will take?

Really appreciate your help - I'd like to know how to do the oil changes on my car myself rather than having to have it serviced everytime.

Thanks again!

Manual box capacity... drain and refill 1.5ltrs, total from dry 1.8ltrs, gearbox oil is Saab MTF 0063. Your method of changing sounds about right. :cool:

Firsly check the level plug as planned , but this should be ok or otherwise you would probably see traces of a leak somewhere around the gearbox.

I would change the oil regardless as it can only do good :)

Doesn't the car have to be level for you to check the oil properly? :confused:
