cvt oil and filter service
Hi all, just thinking about doing a auto box service now it's drying up outside!
I have a 2001 1.8 25 with the cvt box.
Genuine filter/oil/pan seal looks to be silly money.
Has anyone fitted a filter and seal from an early BMW mini with the sam box? They are a lot cheaper as pattern parts!!!
Also the cvt oil is silly money, and know the comma cvt aqe stuff is compatible but has anybody tried Mannol cvt oil?
I use Mannol compatible oil in my Volvo tank gearbox I place of very expensive Volvo or mobil stuff and it fine.
Mannol is about £5 a litre delivered?
One more thing does th Gibbons method work to flu these gearboxes?
