Where to buy ZF Lifeguard 6?

Recommended Posts

Hi Team,

I've been wanting to get my trans serviced on the 335i for a while.  Done plenty of reading on the type of fluid, but theres no general consensus on the best alternative to the factory ZF LG-6 fluid.

So, the question is - does anyone know a good place to buy Lifeguard 6 fluid without bending over at the dealer???

Or a different fluid which had been used with proven success?

Thanks,

Andrew

Talk to Transmission Solutions in Manukau and buy the Amtex 6 speed oil of them. It's what we used

BTW...you need to set the oil level in park on a level surface at 45 degrees C

Make sure you replace the loom socket as well when you do this. They leak and can only be replaced with the pan off. These pans have a fit once or leak tolerance

Thanks Glenn - Do you normally replace the bolts as well?

No... plastic will fail before over tightening occurs
