I have a VW Golf 1.6 DSG engine CAYC and DQ200 gearbox that has covered over 80,000 miles, I can confirm you have a 'sealed for life' gearbox and the gearbox oil or filter does not need changing. Having said that there was a recall ( VW call recalls campaign's) for gearbox oil change, check in the boot for campaign action sticker 34F6. The campaign was to change the synthetic oil to mineral & do a software update on the gearbox. For more informtion check:


Good luck...
