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.

Thankyou Jon, you are the first person in 7 monthes that has not insited that the engine oil and trans fluid were the same thing (like in the MK I BX 1360cc engine)
