I used a length of garden hose and cut a 3L bottle in half as the funnel, haha. Worked a treat!

Re: Replace Gearbox,Transfer Case and Rear Diff Oils. T30 5sp 2002


Do not overfill - It does not always take [sign in to see URL]!

I did my manual transmission oil a month or two ago and, reading the manual, it says you have to use the special tool (of course) to measure the distance down from the top of the fill hole. I ended up putting in less than 2L. Hope you all have not overfilled!

Instructions are on page MT-11 of the 2006 manual. The level is supposed to be quite a ways from the top of the filler hole, around 170mm. I made a T shaped tool out of baling wire which was ~170mm long. When I'd put in enough oil so it was touching the tip of the baling wire, I sealed it up.

Re:


Evorock,

When you say "silicon goo" do you mean the silicon gasket goo for sealing gaskets?

Cheers for the awesome post.

Id like to know if anyone can confirm this?

I took one of the drive shafts out (going to replace both shafts as complete unit, easier than finding a inner cv boot lol) and the oil was above the level of the seal, I didnt think it would be over the shaft seal.

And that Castrol VMX-80 is the right oil emoticon

Cheers.

Hi Gary,
Only one of the driveshafts need to be removed from the transmission. The driver's side unbolts from the extension shaft.
I replaced both of my driveshafts just a few weeks ago and I only lost what wouldn't have been any more than a teaspoon of oil out of the passenger's side so I have not worried about topping it up.
Mine is an auto though.

Re:


hello
regarding accessing the transfer case, do i have to remove all the plastic cover in the wheel arch to get access to the drain and filler holes? as the oil filter isnt visual unless you take some plastic cover off.

cheers for any help given

No.
I only turned the wheel to the far left and worked from underneath to access both the filler and drain plugs.
The drain plug is very tight though and I found it best to use a socket hex-key set for it

Re: Replace Gearbox,Transfer Case and Rear Diff Oils. T30 5sp 2002


Hi EVEROCK,

Great post indeeed !!! Photos always help tremendously. I'm just a little confused as I've seen an Australian YouTube in which the transfer case filler plug needed a SQUARE allen key as opposed to a regular hexagoinal one. My Exy is a 2007/8 GX 2.5 lt. (model sold in Brazil) and the the filler plug seems to have a bolt head rather than a socket. I'd appreciate any guidance. Thanks again. Brian Hazlehurst in Rio de Janeiro.
