The level filler plug is on the end of the gearbox by the tin cover under the wheelarch on the left hand side of the car. It's a 21mm with a slim bolt head, so use a socket rather than a spanner that will jump off. Sometimes its easier to undo the filler but top up via the breather hole on top of the gearbox , a black plastic cap that pulls off. Pour oil in using a funnel and pipe until it pours out of the level hole. Use 75w 90 semi synthetic gear oil ( expensive ) rather than EP 80w90 ( cheap) its too thick and will spoil the gearchange.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
