Please help identify gearbox for 2003 Relay 2.0HDi

Post by Oliver53 »

Can someone please help me to find out what gearbox my van has? The VIN is VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]
It lost some gear oil when I was replacing front shocks, so I need to work out the gear oil capacity as they say you cannot check level on these vans; the only way is to drain and refill with the exact amount it would take. Cheers.

You have a BVM5 4X2 (MLUC) Gearbox

The oil type is:
ESSO 75w80 EZL 848 or
TOTAL 75w80 H 6965

Correct, you should replace the same quantity as removed, but if not possible, a drain and refill:

Refill the gearbox via the air vent hole (1) using a gravity fed container with pipe.

The quantity of oil to refill after draining is 2.1 litres.
