307cc Gearbox oil change

Post by CaptainJavan »

Hi all.

I am having a bit of a problem with my dads Peugeot 307cc. Its the 2.0 HDI 57 plate.

Recently the gearbox has been difficult to get into gear so I figured the first thing I might try is to change the gearbox oil.

However after getting the car up on the ramp I for the life of me cannot find where the drain plug is on this car. Its not where a drain plug would usually be.

Can anyone help?

Should be on the lowest part of the diff housing.
1= Breather/filler
2= Drain plug
3= Level plug

Thanks very much for that. It seems to be partially covered by the subframe?

The drain plug is a bit 'round the back' and close to the subframe (similar box on our BX), so you might need a slim spanner/wrench to unscrew it.
