ZF Lifeguard 6 gearbox oil

I'm looking to do a gearbox service on our 3.6 TDV8 & can see you sell the plastic sump LR007474.
However I've not managed to find the OE ZF Lifeguard 6 gearbox oil on your site - only the Meyle alternative.
Do you sell the ZF oil ? If yes, can you confirm the price for 7 litres please ?

Hi Pawl.

A bit cheeky but when you do the fluid change could you do a quick write-up of the process you follow? I'd like to do the same but there seems to be a lot of conflicting advice and I don't want to create any problems where none currently exist! I just prefer preventative maintenance.

Shaun,
What conflicting info have you seen ?
Ignoring the debate about Land Rover suggesting the 6HP26 gearbox is filled for life (laughable), the only conflict I've seen is the mileage / vehicle age range when ZF say the fluid & filter should be changed.
I had a quick scan of various forum posts & Youtube videos & the process seems relatively straight forward. Basically, in-line with the advice in the Wiki for the td6 gearbox, but following the extra advice from RRPhil about topping up when the gearbox is warm & engine running.

My biggest challenge is trying to get the car level, but high enough to get under safely to top up the gearbox fluid on our sloping drive !
I'll post if there's anything special to note. Paul,

To be fair it's mainly around whether a simple fluid change is effective, or may cause problems if done in place of either a 'mega-flush' (which seems to open up a whole new can of worms!) or at least several fluid changes to gradually increase the volume that's actually been replaced.

I've read the additional guidance on here about topping up but again I've seen information that says you have to be VERY specific about the temperature.

Please let us know how you get on.
