156 2.0 ts Gearbox oil change

Hello Everyone

I am looking to change the gearbox oil on my 156 2.0 ts, It hasn't been changed since I had it, and the mileage is now near 160000 miles.
Does anyone know where the filler plug and the draining point is , and what tools I need to do this.

Thank you very much in advance.

You need a 12mm hex key for the drain and filler the drain is conveniently (not) placed facing inside towards the block with limited access due to the sub frame. The filler is facing forward.

I've got the engine and gearbox of my 156TS out, and I've drained the gearbox.
Plan is while the inspection hole is easily accessible to tilt the engine slightly so as to slightly overfill it.
Once it's back in the car all I'll need to remember to do is to open the inspection hole to let the oil find its correct level and I'm away.
My main concern is the "remember to" part :-)
Any reservations about my plan?
