    If you don't know where the hole is, how do you know that your gearbox need oil? Normally, you don't have to refill the oil and the change intervals are quite huge. Maybe you could describe what your problem is?

There is a bplug in the side of transmission about 2/3 of the way up remove and fill with 90 weight gear oil by using a hand pump. Ask your parts dealer when you buy gear oil. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have to put oil in the gearbox of Vw Polo diesel

I believe it is pretty much the same like on my Jetta 84 1.6 carb. However it is a left hole. :) Turn the front wheels all the way left. Look for a square like the one for changing motor oil, at the head of the gearbox. Oil should reach the lower edge of the opening when car is horizontal, according to my manual.

How to fill gearbox with oil

    Locate the fill plug. This is typically on the top of the gearbox. If you are having problems locating it, follow the speedometer cable down to where it connects to the transmission; the fill plug will be near the cable.

    Remove the fill plug.

    Place a clean funnel in the fill hole and fill the gearbox with gear oil. Check your vehicle specifications to see how much is needed. Re-install the fill plug when done, hand-tighten and then torque the plug down with a socket wrench one turn.

when you go to fill the gearbox you should be filling it from the fill hole that is on the side of the gearbox and you want to fill it right up to that hole --- you can not over fill it because oil will start flowing out,, stop and screw the plug back in, you are done. ( note: make sure you are filling it while the car is level ).
