You have a final drive leak that is accumulating in the "accordion". You need to replace the output seal on the FD. There should be no oil in the "accordion"

2010 Peugeot 207 gearbox drain/filler/level bungs


The drain plug is situated on the final drive casing at the rear of the transmission (plug may need a square or hex drive wrench).

There is no level plug - the correct qty of oil must be measured and then poured in.
If Petrol 1.9 ltrs, diesel 2.0.

The oil is 75/80w.

What gear oil goes in manual transmission 91 Toyota pu 22re. cabanaboy68@msn.com


There are two types of gear oil per say in a car/truck. Did you mean the engine oil or oil for the axle? Either way the engine oil is in the manual for the car, and for an axle you want at least an 80-90w oil.

hope this helps.

the transmittion doesn't have a dipstick. you need to go under the car on the back end of the transmittion and remove a fill plug, like you would on a rear end of a rear wheel drive car. i was always told if its not leaking your all set. its a sealed transmittion.

No!!! Do not tow.
Unless it is a very, very short distance...do not tow. Are there lock out hubs on front? If yes, unlock them, and then remove the rear drive shaft from the rear end. If you can unlock the front hubs, then this will prevent the front differential from turning the front drive shaft to the transfer case. Then you can disconnect the rear drive shaft, and hang it somehow up high against the body so that it will NOT be HIT by the spinning connector yoke on the rear end. Leaving the drive shaft in the transfer case will prevent the loss of oil. BUT......It is critical that it completely clears the spinning yoke on the rear end... or else it will be damaged and may damage other things also. It is also important to remember that as you tow, the vehicle bounces up and down, so there needs to be several inches of clearance between the drive shaft and the connector yoke on the rear end. . If you do not have lock out hubs in the front, then disconnect the front shaft from the front end and hang it also. Use PB Blaster or similar oil to ease the process. If towing on a tow dolly, then you need to only remove the rear shaft. Be careful and make sure that whatever you use to hang the shaft is sturdy.

Gtfour manual transmission


You could, theoretically, weld the centre differential closed so that it acts as a locked unit, however you'd still end up with drive train losses. Might be easier to swap back to your 3S-GE's box...
