RE: Changing transmission oil on 86 4kq

All thanks for the advise, especially the part about not draining till
opening the fill hole.  Well guess what after an hour on my back under the
car I still could not find the fill hole.  Drain plugs 2 were easy to find
but the fill I cant figure it out.  I guess Im now the proud owner of a 17mm
Allan wrench.  But I'm now convinced the buzzing noise is the transmission
after taking the speedo cable apart on both ends did not cure the buzzing.

Oh well another wasted Audi day.

Cheers all,
