sorry to raise this thread from the depths but I'm having a similar issue.

again a 2005 2.0 HDI Expert, I've read every discussion i can find about level plug locations and can't find one that matches the box on my van. there is nothing in the tin plate behind the wheel and nothing on the curved part of the diff casing. figured it had to be the box with out a plug that had to have a measured amount of oil poured in.

so put it up on the lift (i have access to an old 2 post lift) removed the retaining bolt from the reversing switch (at least i'm assuming its the reversing switch, its right at the back of the box held in with a single torx bolt through a collar) and a load of oil pored out of it as i eased it out, i put it back in so not much got out but i'm wondering if this is were i should be filling from, the van does sit a bit higher at the front when its on the lift so it could just be that that was causing it to flow out, but i wanted a bit of reassurance from some one with a more experience with these vans that i'm in the right place. it still has its original factory fill oil so should be at original level.

that makes sense about the speedo drive. the drain plug isn't a problem, already got a tool made up for that.
every thing i've changed gear box oil on before has had a level hole and was usually easier to get to from the bottom (and had a haynes manual, the Experts seem notorious for been a bit mysterious, mine more than most, often gets a cocked eyebrow when i go to get parts were there are more than one option).

any way thank you for the confirmation, I'll get the airbox out tomorrow and get it sorted.

All sorted, thank you reliable406. ended up filling through the reversing switch (the actual reversing switch this time). to any one else finding this thread and looking to do the same, i will say this, a 3 litre pressurised garden sprayer makes getting the new oil in very easy.
