There's a drain plug on the back of the gearbox, think it's mounted on the diff casing. Drain the old oil out from this (best done about 15 mins after the car has been driven, so the oil is warm & flows more freely).
Teen, replace the plug, and remove the oil filler plug on the front of the 'box casing. Then just squirt gearbox oil into that until it starts to overflow.

It's a nasty job, I hate gearbox oil. The damn stuff stinks! [xx(]

always make sure you can remove the filler plug before draining the oil out. you may not be strong enough, have the right tools, round it off, or something else. s**t happens.
