    Hi,

    Even if it is a 722.9 7 speed it will also be spec 236.14 (this is red)

    The later 722.9 gearboxes (called the 7G+) changed to a spec 236.15 (a blue/green colour). This was introduced in late 2010 with the move to with stop/start but (AFAIK) some cars without stop/start had this auto box too.
    The two specs of ATF aren't miscible and the 236.15 shouldn't be used in the earlier box. Anyway, the 236.15 is more expensive.

    Hi,

    Yes, but ... it says 'complies to the specification of'. That isn't the same as Approved by MB.

    How important is it that you monitor the gearbox temp?

    ^ Very. You'll get a different reading if the ATF isn't up to temperature when measured (80C IIRC).

    Is the plastic level indicator mounted on the filter?
