Question about 1986 Volkswagen Wagon Camper
Posted by Anonymous on
You will need a very large allen wrench (like 19mm or so) for the drain and fill plugs.
This is an uncommon size so if you do not want to invest in one just have a shop do it.
If you decide to go ahead, get GL-4 hydraulic oil and a pump. Remove fill plug first (to ensure you can before draining transmission!) on side of transmission, about mid-line.
Then remove drain plug (center bottom toward engine). Have catch pan ready.
Once it has all dripped out, replace drain plug and fill with pump through side plug until it starts to drip back out (car level).
Let it finish dripping out, replace plug and good to go!

Check fluid levels first and also check where the shifter comes through the floor and attaches to the rod going to the tranny, make sure that pivot point is not rusted. There's a plastic to metal bushing underneath on the shifter points. If it's rusted, it makes it really hard to shift. If both check out fine, only then look at possible internal issue. (PS - some clicking is normal.)

There should be a 17mm allen plug at the bottom of the transmission. The filler plug is the same size allen plug on the end of the transmission, visible thru the driver side wheel well.
