gearbox oil
sorry for the amount of threads just trying to get everything sorted

i want to check the gearbox oil

on most cars and vans its a grub screw half way up the gearbox you check and fill with,

was dark but all i can find is the drain plug and what seems very low a very long bolt with a 13mm head, but hole is too small to test with?

whats the proper way on these?
You will not check it so easy Smile
If you want to check oil quantity, you must drain all oil to measuring vessel.
Measure it and then add this old, black oil to gearbox Smile
on ill drain it and put fresh stuff in.

where ya fill it from and how much?
What gearbox installed in your Berlingo?
mines a 1.6 hdi

5 speed
If pk doesnt get back to you by the time i get access to my PC tomorrow, i will post up the instructions from Haynes, which should cover this change.

any luck andre?
I changed mine yesterday. If its a be4/5 box If you remove the left hand wheel you'll see the filler plug in the end of the box (19mm) the drain is at the lowest point of the box below the diff and a 21mm plug. Takes 2 litres in a be4/5 box. I'd advise you get either a mechanics sucker / syringe and correct size hose to fit in the filler hole. I use syringes for cattle as they're high volume. Before you fill the box I suggest you warm the oil by placing in the airing cupboard or similar, makes life easier.

what year and engine is yours?

what oil did ya use?

can ya fill it through the m8 bolt hole on the front of the gearbox? by putting a tube up the hole? or whats the reason for the m8 bolt?

thanks by the way
right i found a guide which looks right and has picts, its for a 206gti but its ment to be the same gearbox so should be right

ill let ye know when i get time to have a ogle at it
Handy guide that, basically what the haynes manual says. Mines a late 02 1.9 diesel with a be4/5 box same as pictured. I couldn't say whether the 8mm plug could be used for filling, don't recall seeing it. Incidentally I drained exactly 2 litres out of mine which is what the level should be. I used an 80 gear oil. I think the book says 75/80w.
