I have read all the different techniques on here but basically at 5pm I am bringing it to my buddies mercedes shop where we will put it on the rack, drop the drain plug and then refill (Pan replaced by PO 6mnths ago). To refill I just pump back in with hand pump into fill plug and start and go through the gears and pump in more? Seems there are different directions wherever you look. Thanks!


Replace sealing ring.

Top up transmission fluid until it emerges from filling orifice.

Start engine.
Replenish transmission fluid until it emerges from filling orifice.
Screw in filler plug (1).
Tightening torque: 24 11 7AZ See: Specifications\Mechanical\Transmission Housing, Transmission Oil Sump.
Press brake pedal to floor and shift through gears 1 to 6 several times at idle speed. Then shift to "P" position (Park).
Then check fluid level.

Checking fluid level:
Connect BMW Diagnosis and Information System (DIS) or BMW MoDiC to vehicle.
Call up Service functions (drive).
Carry out fluid level check in accordance with instructions.
