your in the rite ball park but that doesn't look liken it to me.

What engine is it?

Drain the gearbox oil 1st before u try top up cause there is no measurement of it to go by, so need drain it and refill with recommend amount for your engine and gearbox.

2006 1.4 petrol engine

I managed to get the airfilter housing out and found a black cap not silver/grey and it just pulls off

Im stuck how to undo the bottom bolt to empty the gear box..it looks like a allen key but the 7mm is to small and the 8mm is to big ..unless its not a allen key ??

Coluld be Torx if it's generally hexagonal. Or an imperial size allen , though I wouldn't expect it on a Pug...

Another not uncommon variant for sump bolts and the likes are square drive. Autoparts stores usually carry a "dog bone" style tool with most common sizes

bottom one to undo the plug is a 21 or 22 mm socket u will need.

the top one for breather/filler is normally a 17mm socket, be carefull on it though it's plastic so can crack easily.

pretty standard across the BE4 Gearbox.
