Dealer PTU response.. ?

Recommended Posts

Been on awhile, and posting first time.

I called my local dealer to have the PTU fluid changed.  The service manager said they've never changed fluid in a PTU.  That it can not be done.  I mentioned to him that most everyone I've heard from recommends this at 20k-30k.  He said the only work he's ever seen on a PTU is a seal replacement and total replacement. 

 

This is a pretty big dealership and has been in business a long time 

 

What gives here?

Welcome.

 

Not all dealerships are smart, and they probably don't know that the later models PTU's have a drain plug, and its not in the standard maintenance schedule.

 

There's many reports on the forum confirming that dealerships have done the PTU oil changes.
