Re: 2.0 jtd 2004 gearbox oil change

Hi
I have the Boxer variant with the 2.0 HDI engine 2005 model and the gearbox oil level plug is just inboard of the drivers side drive shaft. Difficult to see as it is behind the mounting bracket. If you can see the drain plug the level is very nearly directly above it. If it was like mine it was overfilled at the factory, so watch out for a flow of oil.
Regards
Stewart

Re: 2.0 jtd 2004 gearbox oil change

Just had another look, you seem to be describing the plug i don't think i have.There's just what i think is an empty hole, i was expecting a hex head,is there something deep in the hole?
anyone any ideas?
Thanks
David

Re: 2.0 jtd 2004 gearbox oil change

Hi,
The plug is approx 20mm (I used and old af size as that was all I had) and no the plug is not recessed in fact I only just had room to get the socket and drive behind the bracket.

Does suprise me that Peugeot fit one but Fiat doesnt I thought they were all made in the same factory to the same spec.

The way people say to fill the gearbox once fully drained is through the reverse light switch on the top of the gear box.

Regards
Stewart
