    it's not really neccessary to change the gearbox oil on manuals. it's not a service item at all...

    if you do want to change it, there is no drain plug, and if you need to refill, then use the breather hole with the breather valve removed.

    By the way.... where the hell is the deep stick to check the level on a 3.2 V6 box? Is there one at all? How do you check the gear oil on this thing
