    Transmission fluid change

    Hereโ€™s a pic and a few notes on my experience on my 2018: When draining, I caught 4 quarts each time, and put 4 back in. The looky-level plug is in fact where indicated, to rearward of the axle. Nothing came out of the level plug hole until I poured some in; I think the level was spot on and what I poured in basically came right out. My vent cap has a nifty if unnecessary hose clamp on it that was biatch to try to pinch while putting back on. Until I figured out the clip-stop deal that keeps it unclamped while installing (as shown in photo). Doh! 10 mm hex for the level plug; 3/8 socket drive with a knuckle and extensions made it easy; had the van on ramps do didnโ€™t take the front wheel off. (Driveway has slight slope and I used blocks under rear wheels to level out)

    What I'm either missing in this post or can't find anywhere else...it appears the check hole/plug for my 2018 TCW is not like any of the videos or pics...it's to the right/rear of the axle and below level of the other check holes shown. ???

    Thanks @Fifty150. There may have been some forethought on the color matching. Bummer is the blue in my logo doesn't show well on dark backgrounds... Appreciate the tips too...except the one about the paint. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Howdy folks, Michael here: short-time lurker, new member and TC owner. Enjoying and appreciating all the great information and knowledge-sharing going on here. Just picked up a 2018 Wagon XLT with 31,000 miles. I've started a Handyman business and opted for a wagon over the cargo version, to give me more flexibility and the benefit of insulation/less noise. Going to perform the transmission flushing ritual this weekend and change the air filters while I'm at it. Any other mustdos or shouldhavealookats you suggest? When not being handy or making used ATF, I'd prefer to be on the water - skiing or fishing, in that order. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for your help so far, and for that which is yet to come. MJ
