I've jsut read that some ppl don't touch the gearbox oil as it is lifetime-fill, and that doing so may cause problems - so how many ppl have changed the oil in their tranny? What do the experts say in this discussion? I am gonna change my LSD oil but should I change the gearbox oil?

i dont think it matters to be honest, all you are doing is changing the oil, aslong as you use the recommended type then it should be fine, brand new oil is never a bad thing

It's a catch 22 situation, if you leave it you could risk doing some damage and if you change it you could risk doing some damage, personally I think if the sump is dropped and cleaned out and the filter replaced then I can't see what harm would come from it.
