Good to know this part is available, though what a goatroot of a procedure to refill and even do something as basic as checking the level on this transmission. The fucking idiot that got rid of dipsticks really should be executed.

Or

The other option is a Wesfil one:

WCTK157 - http://www.eziautoparts.com.au/wesfi...t-wctk157.html ($161.70)

So what is the consensus on the service interval for the ZF box?

70 - 100k

I quick search of the Landrover forums and people that service them donít let it go far.

I had a Territory with the 6 speed ZF in it that did 80% of its work towing a 2+ tonne van. I changed the transmission oil and filter every 100000 km, not draining the torque converter, but just dropping the pan. I replaced the original plastic pan with a pressed steel one from Motospecs in Melbourne. I only used the ZF Lifeguard fluid and when I sold it with 230000 km on the clock it was still operating faultlessly.
I plan to do the same with my, MY14 WK2 diesel and hopefully will end up with the same trouble free run. I am looking at the new oils that are supposed to be equal to the ZF Lifeguard but have yet to decide, as my unit has only 80000 km on the clock, so still 12 months before I do it.

Yeah I'd reckon I'll be changing the oil complete at 80k and will be draining the TC unless the oil I'm putting back in is exactly the same. I would not be mixing oils no matter the spec stated on the bottle.

Hi Folks,

I ended up doing a rear LH bearing so it had to go to the workshop so I got the trans pan swapped and Penrite oil put in as well at the same time.

I would not recommend the the Ryco trans pan as it only has 2 magnets and the ones you can get on EBay from Germany have 4 sets of magnets and they are the same price.

Itís is shifting a lot better is that because itís new oil or because itís Penrite, who knows.

I can say that I had the work done at Poly 4x4 in Huntingdale and I will be back for its service/coolant flush I was most impressed.
