That's the white paint code.

Having done more Googling I believe it's just the NXN which is an Aisin AL1000 NXN.

Aisin box in every auto Touareg since launch.

Have you looked at the fluid change threads on here?

Yep thanks. Probably get my local VW Independent to do it .. looks a bit tricky without a hoist to raise it up and keep it level.

They seemed to only want to change the AT fluid though, not the filter ??? ,,,.

HI there, I had the fluid changed on my 14 TDI just yesterday. The dealer informed me there are 2 types of transmission service - minor or major. Minor (what I did) is simply drain the fluid and put in fresh. Major is to drop the pan, clean the screen (no filter as it is explained to me) and refill with fresh fluid. $316 for minor - $650 for the major. Since I have only 55K miles - I opted for the minor this time.

I went prepared to do battle about getting it done. I have been down this road before with BMW - they kept telling me No - its a lifetime fluid - It is bad to change it. What they don't tell you is they consider the lifetime 100K miles. Anyway, the VW dealer asked me why I wanted it changed - was there a problem that I was trying to address. I explained that I think the "lifetime fluid" is...well, I don't believe it. They said ok, they understood and did it. It was also interesting that they clearly indicated that they not irregularly perform this maintain on Tregs - despite the fact it is not in the maintenance schedule.
