glock-coma Posted April 23, 2013 Report Share Posted April 23, 2013 I changed my PTU fluid this past weekend. 26,000 miles, It looked pretty bad. Replaced it with redline 75-w140. Here's some pics. I accessed the fill plug through the passenger side wheel well.

I was only able to remove about 13oz via oil extractor. The cover plate must be pretty close to the gears. There was very little room to maneuver the siphon hose.
