Re: Topping up gearbox oil on 99 Hyundai Lantra (manual)
You can actually do it from the top if it is similar to a 2001 Elantra??? On your right center of the tranny, there should be two big bolts I believe a 17mm one on the bottom left the other top right of the other. The bottom left is the drain plug the top right is where you fill it. If you want to make things easier you can remove the air cleaner and the air cleaner housing then unscrew the sensor on top of the tranny you can poor it in from the top. You will need to then unscrew the fill hole (Top right bolt) Pour the lube in to the hole where you had taken out the sensor until it pours out of the fill hole. Sounds like more work but by doing this you will avoid making a mess trying to fit the squeeze bottle into the tiny hole. Hope this makes Sense????

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.
manual or auto ?? makes a big difference to the oil used but as its a fiat i would assume its a manual which is topped up with EP90 and the filler plug will be at the front of the of the gearbox about half way up
hi from uk if memory serves ?the g/box oil level/filler plug is-- as you open the hood/bonnet in uk then look down at the gearbox on the front side behind radiator the filler plug is half way down in the center of g/box the filler is a hexagonal heade nut and the size of wrench needed is 17 or 19 mm ?? the level is correct if when you remove plug the oil is at the lower end of hole hope this helps ?
