Just wondering how I top up the 5speed gearbox oil? Where abouts is the plug/bolt to undo?

Thanks all.

If it has no obvious filler plug, then fill through the speedo drive.....careful not to break the tag off the side of it...need to remove a 10mm headed bolt.....then twist it to releese it

What do you mean by speedo drive? Where abouts would that be, do I follow something to find the hole like a cable? Is it just a 10mm head bolt with a electronic plug attached under it, cause I know where one of them is one the top of the gearbox?

I found the speedo cable and 'oil fill hole' but the oil doesnt want to flow into it... I removed the speedo cable and the oil fill hole but still no go. Do I have to remove an additional bolt to let the air flow out of it or is there something else I'm missing?

you take the whole speedo drive out. undo the ten mm bolt and the gear will come out. to know that the gearbox is full the gear will be covered in oil
