Today I decided to replace the transmission oil in my Fabi I 1.4 mpi / 68 km. After entering the channel it turned out that there is no oil drain plug in the gearbox ... there is only an inflow. I did some searching on the net and I found info that vw gebels decided that there is no need for a trigger in these cases up to 1.4 mpi (in other Fabia I models there are ), because the oil is lifelong I am surprised that in the Felicia 1.3 mpi the gearbox has an oil drain, and from what I know in both engines the gearbox is structurally the same.
Maybe some of you have already exchanged oil in this box? Or maybe he has an idea how to do it? Can it drain the oil through the reverse gear sensor? In the attachment I am sending photos, on which I marked the filler cap (blue), the place of the oil drain plug in Felicja 1.3 and which in fact in 1.4 mpi there is no (empty) (pink), reverse sensor (green), lid hole to the unknown (red).
he just wants to change it Nobody will convince me that after 16 years and over 185 thousand mileage, the oil has the same properties as at the beginning, or that the manufacturer of this box (with 1.4mpi) flooded super hyper oil. As I have already stated, the remaining engines in Fabi I had oil / oil drain plugs and the service itself exchanged them.
In my chest 002 from 2002, there is no drain plug, only the end cap in the cast. I poured the oil through a backlight sensor with raised rear right wheel, it was 1.75l, and before pouring the level was in the box and the entry was 2l. Interestingly, I never exchanged oil or added and the car is 17 years old and over 300,000. km. The oil looked pretty ok, it was transparent, brown, but on pure white paper. Zero metal filings. The box worked very well, there were no problems with switching on any gear. I poured oil out of pure curiosity, and that I bought a new one, I flooded Manoll 75W90 Extra Getriebeoel API GL 4 / GL 5 LS, straw color like Kujawski oil. The same amount of oil (1.75l) got in, what I poured out. In total, you can buy a 100ml syringe and a 6mm tube on the syringe and take out some oil and check how it looks like it's not a replacement. For me after the exchange, I do not feel any significant differences, maybe a little better, but this is probably a placebo effect and spent PLN 41 on oil.
