Adding DSG oil through filter housing?

Hello,

is there any issue in adding DSG oil through the top, i.e. after removing the filter?

I'm not too concerned about adding oil this way, but I would like to add a transmission flush... and I don't see it as too realistic to add it from the bottom...

Thanks.

Is there a reason you want to flush? It's normally advised against doing that as you can do more harm then good. But yes you can add it through the top no problem
