    I am not sure if ATF stands for automatic transmission fluid. If it does, is it suitable for this manual gearbox? I do not want to damage the syncro rings.

How to change automatic transmission filter of 2001 Golf

You need to remove the sump pan off the gearbox but what looks like a drain plug on the sump is actually a gearbox filler level tube. You may also find a drain plug on the torque converter. Remove the sump pan and you will find the filter screwed to the bottom of the valve body The problem you will face is filling the gearbox oil to achieve the correct level a computer is needed to measure gearbox oil temperature. With the gearbox oil at 30 centigrade you need one drip out of the filler level every 10 seconds.

How to change the automatic gearbox oil - Seat - Cordoba - 1996

There will be a plug on the bottom of the transmission casing to let the old gearbox oil out.
On an automatic trans the filler is usually on top at the trans dipstick.
On a manuel trans there is a plug about half way up the trans casing.
Drain fully and put in correct type and amount according to your manual. Do not put any old trans fluid in use the type and quantity recommended by the manufacturer!
I find myself just going to a Quick Lube Shop and letting them do it for a few bucks more.. They get it right and it's faster than me doing it myself.

Hope this will FixYa!
