If you go under the car on your back from the front, pass the radiator, keep going past the gearbox, is the drain plug at the rear or side?

Well done, Good luck with catching the oil when it comes out, I probably caught about 70 percent of mine, the rest I mopped up later

Gearbox oil changed today. Steve many thanks for your help.
I caught 90% of the oil but what a mess on the subframe.
The plug was so hard to remove, I bet its the original oil looking at the colour of it.
