My question pertains to a 1998 New Beetle Base Coupe with the 2.0L 8V gas engine and a 5 speed manual transmission.

I'm going to have the gear oil changed in the transmission. My car is 15 years with just 19,000 original miles. However, I am it's seventh owner and I'd be surprised if the transmission has ever been serviced. Is there also a front differential that should be serviced and does it use the same fluid grade and weight range as the tranny?

Thanks!

I bought gear oil online from a VW specialist and brought it to my mechanic (a VW/Audi specialist) who put it in for me. I also had them install the ECS Tuning magnetic drain plugs in both the transmission and the engine. I think I'd not use that mobile mechanic. Sounds like he doesn't know much about bugs.
