I'm sure it's been covered yet I can't seem to find it.

Need info on how to change the oil. What oil to use and how much of it. How often should it be changed?

Pics and vids will be a GREAT help.

10allen key to remove the plugs.
1liter oil 75/80w90 gear oil.
4 20mm alu washer seals.
550ml to rear diff, 390ml something to transfer box.
If you do not have a lift then you can not get the plugs out. That is my very honest opinion.

How ofter? Nissan says lifetime oil, like in the transmission.
But it is recemmended every 60k kms like in the transmission.

Sorry, I meant it for the transfer box and rear diff. T31 diesels do not have cvt.

For the autobox it self:
As I said earlier, for the transfer and rear diff, you must have a lift. Been there done that. Even with 500mm jack stands you do not have enough space to use braker bars.

The ATF can be done on 4 jack stands.
Last time i bought 20L Ravenol Jts fluid.
Then a 8L garden spray pump and removed the spray nozzle and attached the filling hose to pump the fluid in from the drain hole. It pumped out from a pressure line. Pictures in my link.

Nono, If it is a Diesel. They did not made one with a CVT. Maybe they think that it is a petrol 2.0? That is cvt.
Can you write the vin here?

They worked of the VIN number. These stealerships are really not very helpful. 2nd dealership now tells me to use J transmission oil.

VIN JN1TCNT31Z0780053

Nissan matic J or S is the correct fluid.
Vin says, it is 6 speed automatic.
If it where a cvt then in drive you should not feel any shifts.
On the T32, that has a cvt and has simulated shifts, not linear like a cvt was ment to be.
The new civic has a good cvt software
