Takes about 1.8 - 1.9 litres.....use honda mtf-3 only mate.

Unless you've already got it. I'd prob suggest putting some magnetic bolts in, like the spoon set for example. Just catches all the swarf off gearbox and pistons in for your next service.

Get yourself an oil syringe aswell. Makes life soooooo easy. Halfords about 20 quid

I jacked the car up
Put a big sheet down (cardboard will do)
Put pan underneath gearbox
Removed fill bolt (about 6" - 8" above drain bolt)
Took drain bolt out
Jacked car back down
Let drain for 15 mins
Put drain bolt back in
Put oil in syringe.
Got under car (not jacked up)
(Keep tray underneath)
Syringed oil into fill bolt hole
Put fill bolt back in
Tidied up

Easy job tbf should take no more than 30 mins.

Little tip: I used the syringe to suck old oil back up out the pan and squirted back into oil container for easy storage.

Might be able to use abit of tube and a funnel I'd suppose. Ive watched a few videos. Most people use a syringe, and tbf it was easy with the syringe.

That would work tbf.
I could get abit under front and and guide the syringe in. Some people say it's easy with passenger wheel off. I cba to do that haha.
When you see where the fill hole is you be able to work accordingly. It's not hard mate. When its infront of you you'll see how easy it is.

Even easier for me then if it's accessible from above as I have a long arm AEM in the bumper so no airbox or pipes in the way :)

I used a hand syphon pump to fill mine. One end in the new oil bottle and the other in the fill hole. Happy days. Same on the DC2 :)

I did the gearbox oil change 2day. It took about 1.4 litres. I filled it till it poured out. I feel like I put less oil. Is 1.4 lites okay ?

Was the car on flat ground when you done it and not jacked up still?
Aslong as it was, if its pouring out the fill bolt hole cant see the issue personally.

Easier than you thought?

It very hard to put oil in when it‘s not jacked up. The fill bolt is on the side of the box. Best access is to take the passenger wheel off. My car is low and it‘s physically impossible to do it from the front
