Renewing Gear Box Fluid

Post by Frenchy » Wed Apr 25, 2018 1:50 pm

First time I've done it,can't seem to find a diagram online to show where the level,drain and filler plugs are.On a US site it looks like you fill from just next to the gear stick?

I know, it just looks as though the filler is pointing downwards, is a pump needed to fill or can you use a long tube and do it from inside the engine bay?

I did mine from underneath, I did use a pump (oil can with hose) though.

Thanks Darrell,I think what confused me (not difficult) is that I saw a diagram online which showed a drain plug and filler as yours does but a level as well.And as per usual can't find it now.

I use a large syringe. Fill it till it overflows and that's it.
If it ticks over...leave it
