Gearbox oil 020

Post by Jack92 » Tue Apr 10, 2018 10:12 pm

Hey guys.

I’m sure many of you know about it already but I found this site which is very useful.
http://www.brokevw.com/020oil.html

However it does state 3 different oils at the bottom. I was wondering what people are using and recommend?

I’ve got to replace the box so want to put fresh oil in the new one.

Thanks

Just posted in your other thread.:-D

I use this stuff.

https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/car- ... &0&cc5_868

I went fully synthetic in both my cars and been using it for a few years and 50,000 miles in my daily and a oil change later it’s been fine.

You will need some sort of tube and funnel to pour it into the filler hole as the bottle does not come with the long filler tube, I had an old bottle of gearbox oil which had the tube on and I’ve used that.

Euro car parts discount code CLEAR55 bring the price down to £9.04 a bottle so do click and collect if picking up from store as my local store does not mention the discount if you just turn up at the desk.....

just been on euro car parts and they had a code mid35 which gets a couple more percent off if you haven't ordered already!
