    Cayenne transmission oil filler

    any diy folks have experience with the transmission service on a Cayenne?

    if so, what 'tool' did you use to transfer the new oil into the pan? TIA

    Hi Malcolm,

    I haven't done it, but trying to file this stuff away for future reference (I just bought an 04 Cayenne Turbo). Are you wondering about how to fill with a siphon tube like this:

    thx Keith, that would perhaps work but painfully slow.

    The transmission takes ~9L of oil so was looking at the electric pump from PA or I could source a transfer pump that uses air and hook it to my compressor.

    That looks like an exercise in frustration. I'm guessing there's no fill plug because magical "lifetime" oil?

    in all seriousness the Porsche Cayenne gearbox is serviceable and has a factory recommended change interval at 250k kms; perhaps thats a lifetime for most but my GTS is running perfectly and intend to keep it that way

    I want to be in the factory when they do the first fills on all fluids; probably nothing like how its done in the real world.

    The best source for Aisin Type IV fluid is from Toyota (my Volvo uses it as well). Much cheaper from them.

    follow up: I bought the battery powered oil transfer pump from PA and tested on a large olive oil container to more manageable kitchen size bottles..........works perfect.

    Confidence is high the tranny op. will be successful

    I need to see pictures of the test. And the disapproving scowl from the spouse.

    actually my wife was the one to suggest the test as the bigger can of EVOO is to big and heavy for her to pour from; brownie points
