Re: Manual Transmission Filter - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Was this transmission sitting exposed, or just sitting around? If the latter, I wouldn't do anything other than put new fluid in and run it UNLESS you plan on a real teardown. I don't think you will get any benefit from putting a foreign chemical in there - there isn't any reason why the factory synthetic lubricant would leave deposits or anything else behind. There isn't anything to clean.
If it was sitting exposed, where it may have accumulated water or debris, I'd either take the risk or open the case. Just putting some sort of chemical in there isn't going to clean rust or get debris out reliably I don't think.
In either case, a drain/refill cycle would probably be a good idea, but I wouldn't take any extraordinary measures.
