    This "How to" is the one I used. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=114196
    Easy really and without removing the battery box. I refilled with 2.4ltrs of Castrol SMX-S not the amount Vx say. So you need 3 x Ltr bottles
    I never bothered with renewing the plugs, reused the existing one's no probs. But you may want to just try loosening your's first, just incase you b"""s them up if they are tight. As with all these type of jobs, remove fill plug first, just incase it's a b"""""d to get off. You're not left with your oil drained and no way of replacing.

    1) make sure it is the F40 box as others have different amounts of fluid.
    2) make sure you can get fill plug out first before taking drain plug out.
