    Hi all, im pricing up for a service (diy)and it seems there's some confusion about the diff capacity.

    The manual i have is a Bentley and it states 1.1 litres, i looked online and a spec sheet told me it took 0.9.

    It would be nice if it took 1 litre or less, the Castrol SAF-XO 75W 90 that Bentley recommend becomes quite expensive for a couple of 1 litre bottles, especially if i only need another 0.1 litres.

    While i'm at it is there an ATF to avoid or will any make/type do for the gearbox.

    Thanks in advance.

    Davy

    it doesnt really matter as the excess will pour out of the fill/level hole

    should hold about 1.1 liter though

    Cheers, i thought as much but i'm pretty skint so i have to make every pound go as far as possable or i would just have bought two litres straight off.

    I made myself a member at opie oil's for a discount, every little helps.
