    Common problems on some early models. I forgot the exact reasoning behind it but you do need to replace your trans oil.

    Re: gearbox oil hot

    Hate to say this, but overheating can be caused by sticking or dirty valves/solenoids etc. in the pump and/or valve body. A complete flush and a filter change might help clean up the mess. You might also have a plugged cooler or line or cross contamination with engine coolant. Check both coolant and trans oil for that.
    BTW, I can't find "gearbox oil hot" in service manual. Can you elaborate?

    in the screen in the middle of the dashboard appears the message: "getriebe÷l heiss, leerlauf einlegen" (gearbox oil hot, engage neutral gear)

    Thanks, just translation idiosyncrasies. Was engine running when oil was refilled, necessary when filling. Low oil could be cause also.
