How do i do it?
Andy Kirwan has a FAQ on this. I think it is an 8MM allen (hex key) plug underneath that drains it. I seem to recall measuring the exact amount of Mobilube1 afterwards, and filling it through the gearbox breather (Which has a fragile tiny plastic hat covering the

Yeah, make sure you identify all three plugs before you start

cheers but i dont think my halfords sell it
I suppose i could ring around all my local stores but if not what else can i use?
Big BP garages sell it now
Sir, please step away from the car
In the other thread they reckon Vauxhall stuff for the box.
Can we have some consistancy please?
What do Vauxhall themselves recommend?
yeah im confused now what do i use if i cant find the Mobil lube 1 stuff?
Use a good, fully sythetic of the same SAE
Mobilube 1 was too thin for my high miles F28.
Made it a bit crunchy and obstructive when cold.

Now use castrol semi synthetic (SMX or something like that) in the gearbox. Made a difference straight away.

Thread of Cavweb.
P.S I think the confusion is over gearboxes and transfer boses.
gearbox = mobil
txbox = vauxhall synthetic or mobil
