    Hello all,

    I need to top up my gearbox oil - Can someone tell me what oil to use on a 1987 500 SEC please. The manual doesn't specify unfortunately.

    Many thanks,

    Katana.

    Thanks Television.

    Local Merc. dealer is ordering in the oil now - It's their own brand though. In case it's of any interest to anyone else it's part no. - 0009899203. £9.35 a litre. Not sure how that compares to the brands listed above here.
