All of the online help vids and Haines manual show the oil level plug near the n/s cv boot - but
I can't see anything on mine - any ideas Chaps ?

You can't just top this up unless you know exactly how much oil has been removed.

The exact amount of oil that has been removed must be replaced, and as you say 'top it up' I'm assuming you have not drained it first. If you don't now how much oil has been removed or lost, you will need to drain the gearbox, wait for a bit, and then gravity feed it with a specific amount.

Pop your VIN up so I can check if I have the quantity available.

Hi Neil, I've had a look and unfortunately I don't have the data specific to this gearbox variant, sorry.

Hi Marc

My local factor supplied me with a ltr of MORRIS - LODEXOL - MTFE 75W which he looked up in his
spec sheets, so I'm assuming it's correct for my car.
I just need guidance on how to get it into the box !

I don't have your specific gearbox available, but this is for an MC gearbox (note ignore the additional parts on the second picture as this shows the piloted version with actuators that you won't have).

Normally you would remove the plug at (1)...

... then refill at 2 via the vent hole. It should be similar, but I can't tell you the exact amount of oil to replenish for your gearbox from drained - some are 2.1 litres after draining and only allow for +/- 0.1 of a litre difference. I just don't have the data for your gearbox, so can't advise.
