CHANGING TRANSMISSION FLUID, CVT TRANSMISSION

2004 Mini Cooper • 4 cylinder FWD • 125,000 miles

My next question is from my father. The car, a 2004 Mini Cooper (non-S). He wants to change out the transmission fluid.

Most sites recommend pulling off the front driver side wheel, and pulling off the upper and lower plug. Now from everything else I have heard, the CVT is supposedly a sealed system with lifetime use of the sealed transmission.

Any help detailing the whole process/recommended fluid would be helpful.

Thanks again!

The transmission is a sealed unit (CVT) and needs no servicing
