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?
I'm not saying yes to that. Do you know anyone with an off-roader with a winch?

No, unfortunately, all I can do is see if we can do it.

Maybe you could rig up something with ropes, a pulley or two and a come-along ?

Driving it with only a little oil in it a short distance wont do it any harm as usual you are overthinking/overcomplicating things just fill it with a litre of oil and it will be fine you DID NOT loose all the oil only some chances are it was already low anyway as most are.

Fill it through the top breather or the reverse light switch no need to faff around looking for hard to get at fill points.

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, I do always do the overthinking/complicating things, but I do just like to get other opinions and guidance from more experienced people like yourself.

I have it on the drive so I'm thinking I will drain the remainder of what is left 9as much as possible) and replace with new. I've been told it holds 2.0L of oil from empty but I'm not going to be able to get every last drop out so should I go with 1.9L, would this put me about right?

Thanks

You will get 2 litres in if you fill it through the breather as its facing upwards and the easiest fill point on these just pop the cap off and fill through the hole left and it does not need to seal its a breather
