Re: Selespeed dying
The Selespeed fluid is a very high spec full synthetic ATF fluid.
If you are not sure what to use get the std Selenia CS Speed fluid from the main dealer.
FYI there is only 0.6L of fluid in the entire system, so it doesn't take much fluid loss for it to read low. Mine has always lost fluid from the breather tube.
Your symptoms are also the same as the broken gearbox casing issue (which your dealer should be aware of). The actuator shaft has an upper and a lower mounting, the lower mounting is known to break away from the gearbox casing. The fix is a new gearbox... (cost is much less than a new Selespeed Actuator).
