colour of sele fluid

Hi guys ive recently replaced the actuator and gearbox on a 147 from a doner 147.When i drained the fluid from the doner sele system it was white so i suspected some clown had previously topped it up thinking it was the washer bottle.Ive fitted it to the car and all is fine but the fluid is white again any ideas.

Tutela cs is golden brown ! White is not good. Must be water/alcohol in the system, drain the system as good as you can and fill with tutela !

Completely draining the selespeed actuator is difficult since some of the fluid will still remain in there after the electrovalves. Proper way to bleed after the electrovalves would probably be to engage the check valves with a LOW pressure in the circuit.
