Citroën says it's "lifetime" oil on the auto gearbox.

Hi there.

I would agree with the comment lifetime oil.
Experience on other vehicles suggests best left well alone unless you have a concern with changing etc.

Hi Guy's
The "auto" box is if I remember a normal 6 speed or 5 speed gearbox with an electrovalve system that works the clutch for you and also changes the gears for you.
So you have a normal clutch and normal gearbox ( of which would never need its oil changing ) and a electrovalve connected to a computer on the car.

ETG was the automated manual, but later versions came with an EAT6 real automatic transmission. According to the manual it doesn't require oil change, but this is indeed strange.

ETG is the successor to EGS. An EGS gearbox would not allow creep, apparently an ETG des. But as it is an automated manual with an electronically controlled friction clutch, I would imagine using the creep function is not terribly good for clutch plate life.
