    Default Gearbox oil change.... Too much came out!!

    Hi guys finally got round to changing my gearbox oil I've been waiting for the drain plug.

    Anyway got the oil out all be it after a bit of hassle off the drain plug.

    But what my question is. Is I've filled it back up with the 2.2 litres as stated on auto data.

    But I've noticed that over 3 litres has came out? :-S

    So should I put more oil in or is the amount I put in correct?

    Car is 54 plate v6 cdti manual gearbox

    If its the 6 speed F40 then that would be correct, the recomended amount of oil was changed to ease on difficult gear changes from 1st to 2nd when cold i believe.

    For some reason i think its 2.4L thats should go back in but i could be wrong.

    You need to check if you have a M32 or a F40. f M32 its should be 2,4 liter.

    F40 should have 3,2 liter. But some people said opel/vauxhall has change to 2,2 to get it easy to shift.
