On the lower front side of the transmission housing, you will see the filler/level plug, which has a large Allen key fitting. Note it is the plug furthest from the engine; where applicable, do not confuse it with the blanking plug near the bellhousing, unscrew the filler/level plug from the front face of the transmission.

The oil level must be between 10 mm and 15 mm below the bottom edge of the filler/level plug hole (use a cranked tool such as an Allen key, or a piece of bent wire, to check the level).

If necessary, top-up the level with the specified grade of oil . Add the oil in very small amounts, and allow time for the oil level to stabilise before rechecking the level
