I'm the third owner of an Audi A3 2001 1.9TDI with 5-gear manual transmission. I'd refer to the owners manual but I didn't get it when I bought the car, someone must have misplaced it. I can't find much information online.

  • Have you got a workshop manual for it (Haynes or similar) - they usually give the requirements for all the fluids, and can be found cheaply online if you don't already have one

  • A quick google search found : audiworkshopmanual.blogspot.ch/2013/07/…

  • An auto parts store or the dealership should be able to look that up for you.

We didn't get to enjoy the A3 diesel in the states, but every other Audi manual trans from that era that I can look up uses:

Synthetic SAE 75w/90 Gear Oil

Audi Part Number G 005 000
