Pump for the gearbox and diff oil changes...

Postby Mazda Mender » Mon Oct 12, 2020 7:02 am

I deal with a lot of roadsters and their owners in many ways, the changing of gearbox and diff oil as always been a pain, i have looked at and tried many different ways to make this to be easier ,has it should be a very quick simple job to do, but it never is and ends up a faff and messy, well i got to thinking about it again, and i was always steered with the idea of a pump to just switch on , fill until it starts to weep, switch off, filler plug back in , job done....well thats the plan any way.

Will let you know if this does work for those that are interested.

I have used a two way hand pump for ages but recently bought an electric pump from Lidl.

As you say it's always a faff and messy so that's why I am going to try the electric pump next time I do mine unless it's done by Mm!

So much easier with the car up in the air.
