The dealer said that flushing is the best and it changes 100% of the fluid. I have a few questions though.

Does it change 100%?
How does the filter get replaced/cleaned?
What would be reccommended?

Thanks everyone.

It could, but very unlikely.

It doesn't

Drop the pan yourself and pay very careful attention to the amount of fluid removed, replace the filter, then add the same amount of new fluid back to the transmission.

You can forgo keeping track of the fluid in this manner if (and only if) you have the ability to properly monitor transmission temperature (not while in PARK BTW). However, accurate fluid level measurement prior to fluid removal, then replacing precisely what was removed, and re-measuring really helps corroborate the final fluid level is indeed correct.

The WA580's actual fluid level is not something you should guess at.

If your anal, you can repeat the procedure some 1000km later and be assured you got as much of not more old fluid out than <yipes> flushing.

good answers, Moebius.

And to the OP, never think a flush replaces the filter.

But a proper cooling line flush can change out virtually 100% of the fluid like nothing else can.
