gearbox oil check

...anyone know how to?
i cant see too much from the top side (although battery, IC pipe and air box are in the way), so i assume it's from underneath.

you remove the fill bolt and see if it dribbles out a tiny bit. Same with all MT units. Its a sealed unit so theres no where for the fluid to go unless you've got a leak

good to have that confirmed; was going to ensure it was to the top of the fill hole as per any honda. any idea where the fill port actually is?

It'll be underneath the tray somewhere. It'll be fairly obvious

You will need to remove a lot of plastic. Removing the engine oil draining cover is not enough.

still cant find it. you can see enough of the gearbox from the top & side (wheel off). not the same as the 9th gen civic location which seems to be around the driveshaft/diff area of the gearbox.

only side i cant see is on the bottom (drain might be there, fill wont be!) and on the engine side of diff area which i doubt it's there.
