Just wondering where i put gear oil into my 5spd manual gearbox.
i was told to lift the gear console and check for some screw or something like that - pretty vague so i thought i'll ask here.
thanks a lot guys.
Thieving sumbitches may run for now-but only for a while - coz one day, lying in their beds and having nowhere to play, something even bigger's gonna come back to make them pay (KARMA)
I also wouldnt mind knowing as i probably should check mine. From a quick look under the car it looks like the fillers are on the passenger side, theres one near the top, one halfway down. Also looks to be difficult to fill it without some sort of pump as its pretty confined.
In T5 the fill and drain plugs are on the drivers side of the main case. You will need some type of pump. Drain oil, replace plug, fill to level with hole (until it runs back out) of the fill plug. Use dextron III, do not use gear oil.
If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

you dont really need a pump.....jus get a funnel and a long bit of hose....run the hosefrom the engine bay by the extractors into the filler hole.
its really easy...you will need an allen key to open both filler and drain hole. capacity is 1.9L.
I suggest using ATF (as it is the most resilient form of car oil to heat etc) which has dextron 111. if you decide to use gear oil, you should add a product called lubrizol to it. ATF is the cheapest/easiest and best in this case.
