How often should you change your Seat gearbox oil?

Most manufacturers recommend that you change gearbox oil at between 30,000 and 60,000 miles and at regular intervals after that. If you do a lot of driving in urban areas, where you’re often changing up and down through your gears, you drive your car for a living so the gearbox gets plenty of use, it’s sometimes advisable to change your gearbox oil as often as every 15,000 miles.

Always service the gearbox fluid as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer. It is essential that the fluid is kept in superb condition to ensure the gearbox does not suffer from excessive wear or damage. This should contribute to a prolonged and unproblematic gearbox lifespan.

Should you experience problems prior to the next scheduled service as stipulated by the manufacturer it is important to have the gearbox inspected and, if necessary, have the gearbox fluid replaced.

How to extend the life of your Seat gearbox oil?

Like any kind of greasy substance that you put inside the workings of your car, gearbox oil will lose its effectiveness over time. It can also leak, and if you spot such a problem, you should always get it investigated, and the oil topped up if necessary.

If you change gears gently, you will be giving yourself a good chance of extending the time between two gearbox fluid changes.

Using a more heat resistant synthetic oil can also contribute to a longer timespan.
