    Default Auto box oil change & VX stealers

    Based on this VX specific oil for auto boxes http://www.partsforsaabs.com/product...oducts_id=3454, I rang my local VX stealer (Burnham Garage) to get a price for them to supply and change the auto box oil on by GSi.

    Wait for it............................

    £199.00 inc VAT

    They said it takes well over an hour (not according to my mates TIS it doesn't).

    Although it's for Saabs, the VX part no. 93160393 is as listed for the Saab oil.

    So, the spanners are coming out this weekend. With the oil from PartsforSaab costing "only" £25.95 delivered, that gives me a VERY happy saving of £174.05

    You robbing VX w.....s!!!!

    That's why they're called the stealers....... A tad overpriced imo.....

    Err, I hope you know what you are doing?

    I can't say the method for a Vec box, but the Omega ones required running up and topping up until it flowed from the plug hole, very expensive lesson if you get it wrong, and remember not all the old oil comes out, are you sure the £200 quote wasn't for a new filter and sump clean as well?

    Service book only asks for an oil change, no mention of filter or sump.

    Changing fluid in AF23 and AF33 boxes is covered in Haynes manual and seems straightforward enough (concurs with TIS).
