    Brake pads, inboard pad on drivers side has an electrical connector in the pad itself. This plugs into the connector located on the spindle, right above the caliper. Not all pads have this option. Only on the one side.

    Part of both messages: To fill it without the filler tube elbow, it must be pumped some how up into the fluid stand pipe, and then it goes into the pan. The level is full when the fluid quits dripping out the plug hole from the stand pipe. Then tighten the pan plug to recommended torque.

    Part of the other message is as follows: Fluid level stand pipe is located in the pan, right inside of the threaded plug hole. Screws in first before the plug is installed, it is in the same hole as the plug, but goes into the pan plug hole first, then the plug screws into the hole. Hand tighten only on the fluid level stand pipe. The gray elbow that is located on the lower front of tranmission, is the fill plug. It comes with a red cap that splits in half at the seem opening, that red cap must be removed before you can pull the transmission fill hole plug out. To remove the oil fill plug, it must be squeezed together opposite of the clip retainers that are on the inside catch of the filler tube elbow. These are like interlocking tabs that keep the plug on the filler tube elbow. Fluid fill isn't an option on all of the transmission models.

    Been working on 2006, Passat, 2.0t, for about a week now. Air filter housing to the air cleaner assembly, doesn't want to cooperate. Transmission fluid and filter change (A9-TF60SN), transmission. Solved the problem of how to fill it and change the fluid and filter. Oil leak at oil filter cup, top of cup, assuming that it is cracked. New filter, and oil drips after oil change and motor hasn't been started yet from fresh oil in cup. As to prime the filter. Now after starting motor, drips constantly, like dirty oil. New O-Ring. Assume cup was tightened to far before and is now cracked. (25 Newton Meters) torque. Back to the dealership.
    The questions of how to check and change the transmission fluid and filter, along with the pan gasket. Pan bolts (8), (62 inch lbs. torque). Filter bolts (3), (97 inch lbs torque). Transmission plug to pan, (20 foot lbs. torque).
