Default Gearbox oil renewal help.

Hello I have a 2003 1.4 TUJ3P 8v and I'm changing out the gearbox oil.

How do I know when the unit is full do you wait until you see the oil starts to run out or do you need to know the fill amount? Thanks

Like most peogeots you find out how much it needs and just put that in ,theres no filler plug and dont wait till it flows out as by then you will have overfilled it...

Would need to double check but its either 2.0L or 1.9L for your gearbox

Thank you for your help. Most if not all of the gearbox oil drop out when I was changing the suspension arm. I need to move the car back on yo the drive will it be ok to move with no or very little gearbox oil in?

I would not. I suggest moving it in neutral with a working party, incentivised with beer if necessary. No problem finding that filler

One tip for a MA gearbox as will be fitted to this 206 & as found out by many 206 forum owners, DON'T put synthetic gear oil in it, stick to the correct grade of mineral gear oil only!

The MA gearbox was designed in the mid 1980's & putting synthetic gear oil in will result in bulked gearchanges & stiff gear changes.

Hi, Thank you for your reply.

The car is facing downhill, and I will need to get up a kerb to get onto the drive as it doesn't have a drop kerb. It's only got to be moved a few feet, a hefty job for push put 2mins if I can move it in gear.

I have a spare litre of oil, if I put that in first then move to the driveway in the drive position will this stop any damage?

Thanks

Hi, Thanks for your reply.

I am using the genuine oil grade - 75w-80 total (BV)
