Gear box filling plug


Recommended Posts



Can anybody tell me where the gear box oil filling plug is on 1.6 16v zetec?


Many Thanks



side of the gearbox closest to the front of the car.... about an inch up from the gearbox base you'll find a 1/2 grub bolt which needs a 8mm allan key to remove.


car must be level when filling (cannot be partially lifted on a jack or stands) as there is no fill indicator, instead the ideal oil level to fill to is when the oil begins to trickle back out the oil fill hole.
