    A friend of mine does autobox oil flushes using a Fortron gearbox flushing rig (Latest Mk2 version) on Land Rovers, but will do my 530D if I can find out where to plug the two adapters that come with the machine into the box. I'm sure that we can find out if we pulled the car apart - but I'd...
