Ford fiesta, 1995, 165,000 miles, I replaced the left hand drive, or crank shaft I think you Americans call it, I allowed all the gear oil to drain but now can't find where to put it back in. I know the gear oil goes in somewhere by the selectors, but I just can't find the selectors. If you answer my question I will link you on my website-www. Revive. Bravehost. Com Thanks!

I'll see what I can learn me on this one. Crankshaft is in engine, sounds like your in the transmission?

Hey Anthony,
This one looks like a pain to fill! You have to remove the speedometer cable and then the speedo drive unit to fill it to spec. Let us know!

Thanks for your advice but my problem has nothing to do with the tranmission, It was the left hand drive kit I replaced (the bar going from the gearbox to the wheel) All I should have to do is take out an allen key screw and and pump in the gear oil.

Hey,
It seems we have a component description anomaly here. Did you change the "cv axle"? (That would be the drive axle) on the left side

Thanks for your advice but the speedometor cable is no where near the gear selectors, it is beside the gear selectors that the gear oil should go in.

I've being looking through the form and seen "cv axle" come up a lot but I have never heard of it before, I'm from Ireland, You should be able to understand what I mean by "drive shaft" its the bar that turns the wheel. When you take it out gear oil comes out of the gearbox, it is this gear oil I need to replace.
