I've found that it's damn near impossible to get all of the old oil to
drain, and it never takes the full 2 liters to re-fill. If you don't
use the edge of the fill hole as a guide, but merely dump in 2 liters,
you will be overfilling the tranny. >> Stay informed about: Changing out the gear oil in a 96 Jetta GL w/ 5spd...
