Default Gearbox Oil

I was wondering when/if the gearbox oil needs changing. My 307 has done 70k miles and to my knowledge the gearbox oil has never been changed.

The gear change is smooth but I noticed last winter that it was hard to change gears when the engine was cold.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I change mine every year in my Peugeot Partner. There is a noted difference after a fresh oil change.

Your car will take 2 litres of 75w/80 gearoil.

Thanks for info David.

I read this somewhere else:

Peugeot state that the gearbox is sealed for life and the oil never requires changing

Why not, its a very minimal cost to me when I work on them as a day job! Its why theres 211k miles on it and drives like its straight out of the factory.

As regards engine oil, I change that every 3k miles. Thats every two months.

Gearbox oil doesn't degrade like engine oil. Engine oil is subject to extreme temperatures and attacks from hyrocarbons as the engines ignites the fuel. Gear oil just sploshes about to keep everything from seizing up. The only thing to contaminate gear oil is minute (or not so minute from some I've seen)mettalic particles worn off from the gears.

Ok so now I'm totally stumped, I got the gearbox oil and thought I'd tackle the job over the weekend. First problem the gearbox sump plug is a square socket (why!!!), no problem Halfords do these for a fiver.

So while I'm waiting for Halfords to reopen tomorrow I thought I'd check out how to put the new oil in. Removed the front near-side road wheel and plastic liner and found the filler/level plug/bolt, with the car jacked up I removed the filler plug but oil started coming oil. So my question is, how am I supposed to put oil into an opening that oil flows out of, surely I'm not going to be able to enough back in. Or should I roll the car on it's side

Why can't these things be more simple

BTW, my gearbox is a BE4/5.

Fill hole will be on top of the box. Level hole is on the side.

Thanks for that, I did take the battery and tray out and saw a little plastic clip which popped out quite easily. Is this the fill hole? It didn't seem to fit very tightly.
