recently got around to doing the transmission service on my 05 Passat and wanted to thank chittychittybangbang for the excellent write-up in the "how to" section...http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q_how_to/b5/auto_trans_ATF.htm
the write-up allowed me to preplan the job and have everthing i would need on hand for the job before i ever started.
attached are a few pictures and my version of the fill tool....

here is the pan, very little metal on the magnets...:nana2:


and after it was cleaned up...


heres my version of the fill tube...


picture is pretty self explanatory, made from 3/8" tubing, make sure the cut is below the centerline of the tubing, then bend down with pliers/needlenose. i also used the pliers/needlenose to make the tab as flat as possible. this is the main reason for making the cut below the centerline of the tubing.
this never fell out even with me switching bottles.
since i don't have vag-com i used an infrared thermometer. the temperature of the pan when the fluid came out was right at 100*F.
so far all seems good.
:thumbsup thanks again for all the info.

Thanks for posting, the pic is now in the writeup with a credit, thanks for the pic, all contributions are appreciated!

I added a note about the angle of the hose tip - my guess is that a sharper angle would be less likely to drip. Did you see any drippage?

the angle is roughly 90*, but i'm sure a little more couldn't hurt.
the only time i noticed any drippage was after i got aggressive with the pump trying to empty a bottle. it was pumping alot of air. under normal pumping i didn't get any drips.

as for my contribution, before reading your procedure, i probably wouldn't have tried.:dunno it was very informative and easy to follow.

thanks again.
