Postby rustytoba » 30 Jul 2001, 03:55

I need help, last year I baught a Heynes manual and you know how useless the new style ones are adn they dont tell you how ot change the gearbox oil in them. So I was wondering iw anyone could help me by telling me how to change my gearbox oil in my 1991 BX 14 (K1G) engine

Hello,
You will find the drain plug literally on the bottom of the box, passenger side. Its got a 21MM hex plug.
About 2/3 inches above the drain is the filler, again its a 21MM hex.
The gearbox capacity is 2 litres I believe.

You will need a siphon sort of thing - I don't know what's that in English - that is operated by a piston and holds about half a litre of transmission oil (GL4). Without such a thing it is almost impossible to force all that fluid into the box.
