Pretty straight forward diy. Drain/filler plugs are #3 and #5 in the diagram. 44ftlb for the plugs. Add oil 50ml at a time every 15s.

Transmission diagram sourced from “Porsche Workshop Manual”.

Cheers!

I'm planning to change out all running gear fluids at 14,000 Mi as someone decided to drive through flood waters which came up just above the bottom of doors. :(



picked everything up from Sonnen- great website and the service guy was super helpful.


Sorry, if you see the table below it’s 4.1L for the MTF not 6.5L

All of this info is available on PIWIS TSI (Technical Service Information) also someone posted the full workshop manual. I would recommend getting a subscription to the PIWIS TSI site that way you can get the most up to date info. The info I provided is for informational purposes only, I always get a subscription to that service for an hour I think it’s like $15 or something. That way your guaranteed to have up to date info.

Just did mine, seems I could only get 3 liters out, and then 3-1/3 liters back in before spill out? Had it level on a lift, let it drain for a while until nothing else came out.

So this change is not as straight forward with the Base Macan because the transmission brace covers the drain plug (#5), see pic.

I had to shorten a 10mm Allen key to fit in that space but once that was done the rest was easy.

3.2L came out and 3.55L went back in.

The transmission definitely feels better after the change. FYI, the vehicle has 36k mi on it.

BTW, thank you again ttmacan 👍
