Slightly whiny QTronic gearbox - needs oil?

Hi all, the QTronic box on my Ti is starting to be audible, where it wasn't before. I noticed it when I hit the Sport button, particularly under throttle-off deceleration. It's quite a young box, only 68000 kms, and works fine for the moment. I'm wondering what the whine could be. Would a gearbox oil change help? And is it a big expensive job? (I will be getting it done professionally).

Thanks in advance!

Yes, you need to flush it.

Its doable on the driveway using the "gibbons method" and a friend. Takes about 20L of oil to flush it completeley.

Any garage can do it as well if you are not up to the job.

Search the forum for "gibbons"
