There are 2 bolts on the rear axle, the bottom one is the drain plug, the one at the rear centre of the ax;e is the filler plug...just drain the fluid first, if it's nice and clean just fill it up until the oil is level with the filler hole (read: until it starts coming back out..). The gearbox works similarly.
But I must say, dont take our word for it, look it up in the factory manuals. We didnt put them on the site for nothing you know :wink: .
The reverse switch is somewhere on the side of the gearbox I think...havent really looked at it before but mine is broken so I will have to soon.

FABRICA MI DIEM, PVNC!

No.
You can change it on car - just go to the oil change station or garage - this is not big deal man Cool

Changing the gearbox oil is similar to the lsd, drain and filler hole.

Yes, It's allright man :-)
Expect 1.3 litres in the rear end.

You might want to open up the fill plug before you open the drainplug. Nothing sucks more than opening up the drainplug, only to find the fill plug stuck on really bad.

To fill the transmission without using a pump, you can take out the shifter and pour in 1.7L through the shifter hole. I usually slightly overfill by putting in 2 quarts of MTL or MT90 (1.9L won't hurt anything, and helps assure lubrication of the input bearing)

HTH.

Quick note worth mentioning....make sure, with diff/gearbox, you can remove top nut first...

Otherwise you'll have no oil and no way of trying to refill it!
