    Oil for automatic gearbox - ATF

    Castrol Transmax Dex III or Castrol Transmax Z (which is the fully synthetic version, I'm using this one)

    Edit: you need 2L

    There should be a sticker somewhere on the side of the gearbox, usually orange.

    As far as I know, all 6speed manuals use atf as above though.
