There is a plug you need to take out of the bottom corner of the box on the wheel side. Then unscrew the breather on the top of the box by the selector rod, and pour oil in until it starts to come out of the plug you unscrewed. Once it no longer flows from the hole all is done.

Hope that makes sense.

I think you have to take the diff casing off to drain it.

miles is correct, there no drain plug so you would have to remove the diff pan and get a new gasket for it.

yep, drain from the diff casing, has a little magnet in the bottom to pick up all the little bits of metal from general wear, need to clean that too and replace the gasket before you refit... make sure you use gearbox oil too!

when i went to local garage to change the gearbox oil - they actually suck the old one from the hole you're actually pouring the new one. i know that you can't drain it all like this way, but it's really easy and quick way to do it without messing with the diff casing and putting new gasket.

after changing the gearbox oil - a miracle happened my 140000km corsa was able to change in 2nd and 3rd with such ease - it was like a new gearbox. i was told that oil should be changed every 100000km but after i saw the effect on my old gearbox, i'm gonna change it every 50000km and be happy with my gears
