For those of you who want to try ir this is how.
Raise car, lift or jacks with safety stands,
Drain oil and remove 6 torx bolts holding pan to case.
Pull off filter and discard, (fit new when re-assembling)
Remove wiring connector by rotating peg on outer of plug.
Remove small 7mm brass bolt in centre of transmission socket and pull out plastic sleeve from transmission case, note sealing O rings and replace them on re-assembly.
The valve body is held to the case by ten torx30 bolts, the remained hold the two halves of the valve body together, do not remove these.
Generally speaking these ten bolts are split between the very front and the very rear not in the middle do not remove these, if you are uncertain leave the middle bolts intact and release all the remaining bolts a few threads at a time until the valve body becomes loose and by lifting the valeve body up and down you will be able to see which bolts remain stationery by being in the case and which move with the valve body these are holding the two halves together so tighten them back up.
When the valve body is off you will see six solenoids held down by three bridge brackets each with a central bolt, remove the bridges and pull out the solenoids noting their positions for replacing in the same positions, some of the solenoids are identical and can be fitted in different places but it is best to re[lace them in the same positions, note that some but not all the solenoids have small filter in their seating area.
Gently prise off the plastic plate assembly, and press the new one in place engaging it's retaining clips.
Reverse the actions to replace keeping everything clean, when replacing the electrical connector sleeve note that it will only go on one way and that you have to engage it properly before you can start the threads on the 7mm retaining bolt, new oil and filter, you will need to set the oil level correct.
Try 140 589 15 21 00 which may be the part no for a dipstick tool.

Sorry Guys went off half cocked again and forgot to check my spelling.
Also I did not mention the manual valve, when refitting the valve body make sure that the fork on the sliding manual valve engages with the pin on the selector, move the lever in the car and make sure the valve slides in and out in response, if you slacken the bolt holding the leaf spring it will make fitting the valve body to the case and aligning the manual valve easier, tighten up after the ten bolts.
