Default Fluid and filter change

This question has probably been asked before, but I cannot find anything using the search, so.....

Is there a write-up or pictoral for changing the fluid and filter on a 2007 NB with the 6-speed DSG auto trans?

I've done lots of fluid and filter changes on other cars, but I would like to know if there is any tricks I need to know before I tackle it on the 2007 NB in the next couple weeks.

I understand the fluid requirement is JWS 3309 type ATF correct??

Any tips or help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Glenn

You do not have a DSG, the only NB that was available in was the 04-06 TDI's. The DSG is a dual wet clutch automated manual transmission, it does not have a torque converter. You have the 6 speed 09G, which is a traditional automatic trans with a torque converter. Buy a Bentley manual, it has the info you need.

That write-up is for the 4 speed 01M, completely different animal than the 09G.
