Most of them probably have an hexagonal or square type threading nut on gear box to check the oil level as well as to fill up gear oil in it for opening such nuts you requires a helan or hexagonal alen key set if you are still stuck then please walk to the nearest VW, AUDI, SKODA dealer workshop or authorised service station near you... see you soon.....!

How do i refill gearbox oil

We need more information. Type of Vehicle, year, is this manual transmission....etc. That being said, most "gearbox" have two 'bolt type plugs' on them. One to drain fluid out and one to put fluid in. Really need to know more about what you have.

I cant seem to find where to top up the gearbox oil on my 83 land cruiser

I dont believe thatford ********, ---get under the cruiser half way along the gear box on the left hand side you will find a bung plug 1/2way up the gearbox that is your filler and oil just dribbleing out that hole is the level.----at the back of the gearbox but attatghed to it is the transfer case this is made of aluminium,at the back of this slight y to the left about 1/2 way up is another bung that is the filler for the transfer case and also the level ,NOW LISTEN GOOD if you havea hose conecting the gearbox ******** to the transfer ******** thats good it just means the previos owner ,.or one of them had their head screwed on . W hat happens is this, strange as it seems the transfer case oil gets forced up into the gearbox,with the end result that the gearbox gets over full and the transfer gets low on oil,what we have been doing for many years is putting a bypass hose between the two fillers and as the oil gets forced up into the gear box it gravity feeds back down into the transfer case,,,so if you cant find the bungs but you have that hose you now know what it is all about, -------please let me know if that solves your problem, I know I am right but it is nice to be told

I have a 2002 Dodge ram 1500. I have a leak in the fron dif

Look all around the housing for a fill plug about mid-way up from the bottom.
Unscrew the plug (ususally with a 3/8" ratchet extenesion) and pump in the correct gear oil until it just begins to drip out the fill hole. Replace the plug snugly.
