Not too familiar with this model , but from experience with other makes, theres usually a fill level plug near to the drain plug (they usually look the same)that if removed whilst filling it will spill oil from it thus telling you that the correct level is achieved, hope this helped

This is a sealed Gear box and needs to be done by a proffessional , but just to give you an idea.
You need to start the car put in reverse for couple of minutes , thenput into drive for couple of minutes , back to park. Lift the car and again start the car (IN PARK) , then open the Transmission drain plug while running (could be a little messy for you) , when you open the plug if a little oil comes out , then oil i good , if not then you need to top the oil till it starts dripping oil out of the plug. As these models would take in what it needs and not more. After that put the plug back in its place and make sure that there are no leeks. Please remember that this has to be done before oil tempereture goes up , so you want to do while car is cold or other wise you have to stop and do again when cold

Would like to know where the top up plug for my gear oil is and if there is a dip stick manual proton savvy bt 2006

Manual Transmissions don't have dip sticks.

2. Manual gearboxes have a drain and filler plug. The filler plug is usually found in an accessible position on one side of the gearbox which has to be accessed from under the vehicle.

To top up the gearbox the car has to be perfectly level so if you need to add oil to the gearbox you ideally need to get the car up on a garage hoist/lift so you can both access the filler plug easily, remove it and pump in the fresh gear oil. The usual correct oil level on these gearboxes is level with the bottom section of the filler plug opening in the gearbox. However you should check with the proton service staff on the correct procedure for topping up the manual gearbox in your car.

How to check oil level

What type of GB? Exact year/engine of your 307?
On most newer vehicles, you can't check GB oil level cause there's only the drain bolt. You must check in service/user manual how much oil is needed for GB (for manual GB it should be 2 ltrs).

Gearbox oil

Not sure of what you are working on, ...but
All standard (Manual) gearboxes have a drain plug, and located higher than that, another similar plug used as a level. You remove the upper plug and fll until it is within 1/2 of an inch, to running out the hole. Make sure the vehicle is level when doing this.

Just checking.... it is a manual gearbox?

You may need a special tool for the drain plug and a 17mm allen key for the filler (some use the special drain tool for the filler as well)

The drain plug is located under the diff housing.

The filler plug is located on the left (nearside) off the gearbox (look to the left of the hole and you can see the 17mm hex filler bung).

Check you can undo the filler bung, then drain the gearbox oil.

Refit drain bung and fill gearbox through filler/level ********* until gearbox oil is up to the level of the filler bung.

Refit, test drive, check for leaks and retest level again when cold.
