    Default clarification required for f40 gearbox

    right story goes

    doing o/s cv gaitor this morning before changing gearbox oil in the siggy
    when i pulled the drive shaft out of the box obviously the fluid came out

    went to remove fill plug on top of gearbox ....... wouldnt shift , stuck fast

    bit of sweating and several different tools later got it off

    replaced driveshaft into gearbox and bolted it back in

    now the fun bit.....
    cannot for the life of me get the drain plug out of the gearbox its stuck fast and just rounding off so i thought
    not that much of a problem most of the fluids out i can just top it up with whats missing


    the question is ...... how much oil is in the gearbox to start of with

    i know i should put 2.4 ltrs back in and i could do that if i could drain it but i cant get the last bit out

    i measured what has come out and its 2.8 litres
    now im under the assumption that originally there was 3.2 ltrs in there so that would mean that i only had to add 2 litres

    is this correct ?????

    thanks for reading

    That sounds about right, what I would do.

    Just done mine and put 2.4 ltrs back in, I managed to get the drain plug out.

    Didn't measure mine when I drained it, but I reckon around 3ltrs came out of it.

    Put 2.2 litres back in, in case some is still left in there. Even if it's all out, having just 2.2 in there is fine.
