There should be a level plug on the front LH side of the cast iron carrier, between the flange and the mounting face of the housing.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

I would pull the centre out and put a new gasket in as well so this doesn't happen again. Then fill it from an axle tube as it'll be empty and you will know exactly how much goes in! (lazy but it works)
