Default Auto transmission service

I am wanting to change the transmission fluid and filter on my 1995 Rialta. The problem, this transmission has a rectangular pan with rounded corners. When I look for a replacement seal and filter kit, there are about 6 different configuration pictures of the gasket, all supposedly fitting this unit, but none look like a fit for my unit. Can anyone give me some pointers on this problem. Thanks.

If your Rialta is based on a Volkswagen chassis, do yourself a favor and take it to a Volkswagen dealer. I had to spend $9000 to get my transmission replaced, no fault of mine, it just happened. They are a very complicated transmission and require someone schooled in transmission service on Volkswagens to make repairs.

You can say that again! I did a lot of looking on the Internet and learned that eight to $9000 was the going price. I had to fix it to be able to sell it, sad but true. The entire transmission had to be replaced, and to do that the entire front clip has to be pulled off and the engine and transmission pulled out through the front. Huge job.
