Hi Gary

Welcome to the forum.

Gearbox filling hole on your car is on the right side of the gearbox behind the driveshafts. AFAIR the oil should be at level with this opening.

It is certainly a good thing to replace the gear oil, but it really sounds like you need a new clutch...

I think you have it just right.

And yes, it's very hard to access. I guess you need a pump.

I took the gearbox off to do it! Cheesy

(Ok, I did the clutch at the same time)

I found this photo in my archives... the top hole where you see the red headed cork is where the reversing lights switch go in. There's a hole further down but on the same side which for filling, and yes - instruction says to fill it until it starts flowing out.

There's a Haynes manual for this car, you might find that useful!

I'll have to admit I never used the nut either - it wasn't rounded, but I just couldn't get it out!

So we ended out just pouring two litres of oil into the reversing lights switch hole before fitting the gearbox back on the car.

There's another opening on the gearbox you might be able to use: On the rear, there's a reverse release wire going in. You should be able to get plenty of oil in through there. I remember it poured out of that hole when we lowered the rear end of the gearbox from the car - hence the corks Wink
