Default Ignis 4 grip gearbox oil

Hi I have 2 queries:-

How do I top up the gearbox oil on a 2005 Ignis 4 grip? A photo would be wunnerful............

Also, how do I change the headlamp bulb? The rubber cover seems to be very tight and the wiring connector for the bulb is attached??

Attached is two pictures of the transfer and gearbox oil info. Filler has yellow circle.

As for the head lamp, the rubber boot should peel off the back of the lamp assembly revealing the globe location.

Default 3 oils?

Hi please bear with me as I am new to 4 wheel drive.

Does this mean that there are 3 oils to top up ie gearbox, transfer box and rear diff?

Many thanks.

I have have been "jinxed" by this thread. Yesterday was doing a simple engine oil change on the Iginis - I have a car hoist, so what could possibly go wrong for a veteran car tinkerer of over 30 years?

Well, as I rotated front wheels to inspect CV Boot Rubbers, I noticed LHS front wheel was a bit wobbly, so a bearing has collapsed (explains that rubbing sound in front end when cold). It's on the hoist, I have the air tools, only nine nuts and or bolts and I have two donor cars for parts, what could possibly go wrong from here?

After removing 30mm nut and the washer, the bloody CV shaft would not slide out from the hub (rusted into the splines solid). OK, first mistake, I undid all the other nuts and or bolts before the CV was loose in hub splines! Whilst stuffing around with that, the shaft came out of the gearbox and lost a bit of oil onto the floor. No big deal, clean it up, I have gear oil on in my shed and top up oil later, what could possibly go wrong from here?

I attempted to remove the CV shaft from hub with my Shop Press - I almost broke that too, as i noticed the cross beam was starting to bend under the pressure, so gave-up on that idea.

Anyway, found out LHS CV shaft is same comparing AT to MT (RHS is NOT) and it was the LHS I was working on - plain sailing, until, I couldn't get the 10mm gearbox filler lug out of the hole with my 3/8ths drive ratchet,as it was also seized and the drive twisted at the weakest point, where the little ball bearing hole is. Luckily, it was an old ratchet and I have spares, but wasn't going to destroy the rest of them. So, I set off to the spare parts places to get the correct tool (10mm square drive Plug Socket) on a Public Holiday. No open stores in had them.

So, despondent, I started to go home, but thought I would try the tool section in the nearby hardware chain store. No, not there, but I noticed the 3mm nail punch was square and close to 10mm at the striking end and was long enough to put in the hole and turn with big shifting spanner, so I bought one!

Oh yeah, I also noticed the Strut shockie was leaking oil too - oh well, another two nuts and the brake hose clip and it was replaced too.

All fixed now - simple oil change done!

I would expect it to be 10mm but I will admit I can't confirm this
Comes back as part 09248-2003 but I couldn't find anybody stating its key size.

So someone actually didn't read my story with the solution contained within!
