Hi, first post here.

I recently bought a MK5 Jetta with 191K miles on it. Runs and drives great, the previous owner did lots of repairs including replacing the fenders and door panels.

However the maintenance history on the car is unknown. The previous owner had a wonderful chart, however I left my windows open on a summer day and a critter turned it into a nest.

Now I'm looking to do other preventative maintenance, starting with the gear oil. I can't exactly find a good guide or anything on how to check the condition of the gear oil with an unknown maintenance history. If anyone has any resources about this topic that would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks
