Default Transmission fluid change/add question??

I've been looking at posts that talk about doing transmission flushes. But isn't that for automatic transmissions only. At 60 k I went to the dealer and was told with manual transmission they just drain it and add fluid; with automatics they flush ... Anyway. I'm at 112k and want to change the fluid just need some recommendations on what/how to do it.


Cheers

Royal Purple is good. I just changed my tranny fluid with it and it's fine. Kind of pricey but fine. I followed the DIY and it worked like a charm....just needed to buy the big ol' socket for sensor on top of tranny
