Anybody out there ever change the gear lube in their 5 speed?  Looking in
the Bentley Manual it says to pour in the new fluid through the hole that
the speedometer cable goes into.  What size Torx does it take?  Are there
any special things I need to know when removing and reinstalling the
speedometer cable?  TIA

  Drive until warm, jack up as needed to get the drain hole lowest and
pull the plug.  You'll put back about 2 quarts but don't trust the level
check hole necessarily, many were too low, about a half quart!  My
speedo cable is held in with a big, #3 or #4 phillips.  Only Torx I've
seen on a VW engine, holds the oil squirters in.
