Dropped the oil,cannot spot the filler.
Can anyone give me a clue to it's location and is there any special method for refilling?

Filler is at the front of the box (below the starter motor T: ) The best method for changinge gearbox oil, is to remove the filler plug first ;)

Sorry to butt in but is it just a push in plug on the right hand side of the engine bay as I can see a cog through a hole on mine, ive been told that it is just an inspection hole for the fly wheel and not to worry but by coincidence just read this thread, and now i am :(

Hope you haven't poured oil all over the clutch :eek:

Hav'nt done any work on it, and engine is'nt leaking any where near it, either way do you agree that it is just an inspection hole?
