Okay, before branding me as insane (slightly may be okay), please hear me out.

There really is oil in an eGolf. It resides in the "transaxle" (even though a one-speed I am willing to be there is some kind of lubrication juice in there). Since we plan to keep this car for the long haul it seems like a maintenance item that should get looked after.

Anyone know if there is a recommended change interval for the transmission juice in the eGolf? Any DIY thoughts on this? If someone who has downloaded the service literature can chime in it would be great.

Thank you!

Very interesting that the trans oil change interval for a 2018 is every 30k miles but the interval is not mentioned for the 2015 model year.

Any idea what the fill is and how to change?

Our 2015 eGolf was purchased used from a VW dealer at just over 30k miles. Service was done prior and the car's "health emails" indicate next service is not until a little over 50k miles (we are at 45k now). Seems there is a discrepancy between the documented maintenance schedule and what the car sends in the monthly health report.

BTW, I believe that this 2018 schedule states every 3 years for this service. Nothing about every 30,000 miles in there.
