Could anyone tell me the correct Oil Grade for the Piloted Manual Gearbox in a 2014 1.6e-Hdi Allure? I can't find it anywhere.
I have just ordered a complete clutch kit inc DMF and Central Slave Cylinder from Mister Auto which I intend to change in the near future. The car has done 86,000 and the clutch has just started to slip. I'll need to drain the oil as driveshafts need to be removed in order to get gearbox out of way to change the clutch and flywheel.
Also, what oil is used in the gearbox hydraulic actuation system?
Thanks in advance,

Found the following information regarding Oil Grades
Main gearbox 75w80
Hydraulics SAE75.

Anyway, clutch and flywheel change has been done. Found that the clutch plate had been contaminated with gearbox oil due to seals failing in the Concentric Slave Cylinder.
