The kit with all the plugs is LR065237 (was LR023292 )~£36, I can't find a part number for the drain plug on its own.

Great guide,
Also, changed the filter, which was a pain, as, unfortunately, the front and rear filter screws align nicely with chassis cross members. Removing the rear mount bolt and jacking up the transfer case is needed, At 98K miles, oil was still green and smelling "fresh" Filter magnets had a little light fur from gear mesh bedding in etc. Used Millers ATF8. Very Happy

Our cautions with very high milage boxes is that damage can be such that the adaptions have slowly gone outside of the normal range and effectively the gearbox is doing all it can to keep things going. Once reset the gearbox cannot adapt back to this extreme value. This may may trigger a fault or harsh shifts.

With regular ATF changes you can help avoid this and at 54k your gearbox will be fine with an adaption reset.

Had my flush and reset done on my ZF8HP with 68k miles on the clock, wouldn't recommend the reset personally. It was less smooth and there was a harsh gear-down when coming to a stop resulting to a slight shunt.

I'm all for fluid changes, but wouldn't mess again with a reset.

Out of an abundance of caution, can I just confirm that the transmission fluid change process is the same for the ZF8 box fitted when paired with the SCV6 motor?

Thanks. Thumbs Up
