Guys, I have noticed an issue with my gearbox, there is oil coming out of the gearbox breather. Somebody who knows what the cause of this may be, or is it no problem if this happens sometimes?

The cause of this issue is an internal leakage, therefore the pump keeps running which causes the oil to start boiling. I would like to warn you not to open the mechatronic yourself because it is under high pressure (60 bar) and can cause serious injuries.
If this problem isn’t solved quick, it will cause the printboard to burn trough and then the car will be stuck in Park. The advice is to replace the mechatronic as soon as possible, to prevent those kind of extra issues.

Got the mechatronic replaced and no issues since then! Drives like new.
