need a large allen key/socket for the gearbox and 3litres will cover it(2.8).

drain and filler plugs are located on the side of the box and are gold(ish) in colour. facing the pass front wheel so to speak.


17mm(fillerplug) and 24mm(drain plug) for the transfer.

drain is on the underside facing towards the floor and filler is on the side near the driveshaft on the drivers side. facing drivers front wheel.

hope that helps? if not i'm sure there is a how to with pics on here somewhere.

transfer box is about 1litre(0.6litre) and workshop manual says 80-90 or 90 lsd oil.

75-85 or 75-90 for the gearbox.

Biggest problem is getting the new oil back in !

I used a piece of garden hose, one end on the filler hole, the other up to a point where I could pour the oil into.

Only for the gearbox & transfer box. You need the special lsd oil for the rear diff.

the gearbox pic above is wrong as that is a 5speed box. the drain is in almost the same place but the fill is v.different.

I use Millers CRX 75 90 for gearbox and Silkolene Syntrax 75 90 in both tranny and rear diff. Both are highly recommended

[QUOTE=granty;3142878]how about castrol for the gearbox?[/QUO


When Mitsi used to service my car they used Castol in the gearbox. TBH not that impressed. Gear change was notchy and difficult to get in gear, especially when cold. I have been using Millers CRX 75w 90 for a while now. Made a huge difference to the gear change, it is now smooth and precise even from cold
