Where can i top up the gearbox oil????

  Renaultsport clio 172
I think either the gearbox saying bye bye or just the input shaft bearings are gone, but its definatly leaking oil

so for now until i get pay to sort it does anyone know where to top up the gearbox oil???

How much is it leaking? They all seem to weep a little.

If you look on the front of the box there is butterfly screw. You fill the box up there and the level needs to be to the bottom of that hole.

up early tmz morin so gna check that to, hopefully aint that i just had both driveshafts replaced. It all startd cause i reversed to hard and it popd out and ever since my reverse soundin loud and real bad and drives horrible, other gears tho are fine.

Maybe that reason?? maybe driveshaft loose or smthin??

Had a brand new steering rack fitted at the beginning of the year and it started leaking gearbox oil soon after.

Problem was the inner drive shaft gaitor that had not been put on properly. Oil leak stopped after gaitor was fitted back correctly.

Hope you get it sorted mate.
