    Default F40 gearbox oil change

    Hi all,

    I'm sure I have read somewhere that the F40 gearbox on my 1.9cdti(and probably others) is sealed for life? is this so?
    coz was wondering if anyone had managed to change the oil on this box?? and indeed if it would be considered necessary to even try and do this??
    Nothing wrong with the box just something I was contemplating as I am expecting to take the car past 130k miles (84k at mo).

    You dont need to change the oil only check the level on routine services.

    when they say sealed for life they dont mean it is actually sealed .....you can still drain an fill the box .........the oil they use is sposed to be so good it will last the life time of the gearbox or car ........i think a change wouldnt hurt the box as long as you did it right and used the correct amount of oil....
