Having recently acquired my DS I am still finding my way around some of the basics. I have changed the engine oil but have not yet changed the gearbox oil and I might tackle this tomorrow. Can anyone recommend a suitable gear oil for a five speed DS please? I realise that the factory specified Total EP 80, but this is not always easy to find. With all the experience on this board, I'm sure a few people would be able to suggest easier to locate alternatives that work well in the 5 speed.
I got under the car the other day for a look around and noted a bolt that is a fair bit smaller than the drain plug in the offside gearbox casing, that seemed to be in about the right location for the oil filler/level orifice. From what I could see the five speeds appear to have two drain plugs- including a separate one to dump the oil trapped in the front casing - but it appears that the whole box is still filled through the one filler and both casings share a common oil supply. Am I on the right track here guys?
On another track I understand the injected Ds used Bosch distributor components rather than the more usual Ducellier or SEV. I'm already onto the correct off the shelf contact breaker part number for these - they fit some Holdens and VW - are other components such as the condenser, rotor and Distributor cap easily and affordably acquired?
Thanks in advance,
