Volkswagen 0AM DSG 7 speed Dual Clutch Gearbox Oil Filling Procdure

The new 7 speed Dual Clutch Gearbox from Volkswagen now has a separate Mechatronics unit fitted. The previous 02E 6 speed required a special DSG fluid where the new 0AM 7 speed uses a more common 75W/90 gear oil. The 0AM 7 speed also has the mechatronics unit separate with its own special mechatronics fluid. This fluid is not available or hard to find and there is also no level check on the mechatronics.

Servicing Schedule…

Volkswagen states the fluid is fill for life however alot of service books/guides state change the fluid every 60,000kms/48 Month log book service.

Draining The Gear Oil…

First you will need a container with a measure on it to catch the fluid before draining. The drain plug is a large female HEX plug on the bottom of the transmission remove this to drain the gear oil from the transmission.

Required Refill Amount…

Its always good to measure the amount of fluid removed as the transmission only requires 1.8 litre’s (1.9 quart’s) and there is on level check.

Refilling the Fluid…

After draining the fluid refit the drain plug and tighten (30Nm), next locate the breather on the top of the transmission on the plate where the gear selector is connected. You need to pop the breather cap off (it may break as its plastic) and connect a hose to it and your bottle of fluid. The factory fill procedure is gravity filled so its not recommended to pump the fluid into this location as it could cause problems.

Correct Level Check…

The level is set by the amount you put in there is no level check plug or dip stick to set the correct level. If you drain less then 1.8 Litres its still a good idea to fill the transmission with 1.8 litres of fluid.

Conclusion…

Please use the following information as a guide and if you are changing the fluid or have been caught out removing the wrong drain plug. We also have an alternative filling procedure please see link below.
