It is also necessary to prepare necessary amount of gearbox oil (address the Section "Types and Volumes of the Applied Lubricants and Liquids" of Specifications).

Replacement of RKPP oil is made each 80 000 km within carrying out maintenance. In intervals it is necessary to check RKPP for tightness and to control oil level in it. Level has to reach the lower edge of a jellied mouth.

Gearbox oil merges in a hot state (i.e. right after a trip on the car); from hot oil pollution are removed easier. It is better to perform works in rubber gloves.
