156 1.9 JTDm Gearbox oil change

hi all

just been searching and found some helpful posts by David C on this but wanted to check

04 plate 1.9 JTDm 6 speed box

Its a bit sticky, hard to engage 1st in cold weather until its warmed up

Seems like to fill the box I need to find a dipstick tube on the rear of the box, probably hiden under the battery area, can anybody confirm?

Underneath I have located the drain plug, on photo below the right plug

but whats the big bolt on the left?, I was thinking it might be the fill plug until I read about the above, and anyway it doesn't look right


capacity looks to be 2 litres
