Gearbox questions please.

what ho chaps, I did the transmission reset as advised on this esteemed forum, made a difference alright, now feels a bit jerky and far too willing to change down a gear. How long does it take to adapt to my driving style - not that I have any!


Question the second: how do you check the gearbox oil level? Can't see a dip stick for the 7g?

You set the level when you fill it and there's no provision for checking it afterwards.

You need to bring the transmission oil to 45 degrees and then remove the sum plug. It has to "drip drip", no dripping low oil steady stream to much oil.
