For a 147 Twinspark,

From the front of the car, where should i be looking for the 'filler' plug? I've a picture from E-Learn but to save me spending too much time under the car in the cold, where exactly is it?

:thumbs:

No dipstick on the TS box.
The fill plug is on the front of the gearbox next to the reversing light switch.

Yes, you check the level at the "Fill" plug.

Using the drain plug to check the level would be a mistake...!! :)
So not the one on the bottom then.:)

I'm guessing the under tray needs to be removed (Can't wait to undo those seized bots...)

on level ground remove the filler bung, if fluid comes out its full, if not add fluid until it comes out. 75w/90 is the grade

Why is there no mention of this in the manual?
Probably not considered a user checkable item.
It is on the service schedule for every service though (may be every other, I haven't looked at the schedule recently).

Yup, was hoping to see a diagram in the manual.:(

So if the oil spills out, this means it's fine & i just re-tighten? If it doesn't, i re-fill, or do i re-fill regardless?

If it spils out on the flat, it means there is too much.
If there is a drip, it is ok.
You can get a finger in the hole :)o) to get an idea of the level.

Use your finger in the filler opening, if you get oil on your fingertip its OK...
