Please just email your response.

Ok, I will get the details of your vehicle and reply by this thread.


The capacity of the gearbox is 2.2 litres of GL4 oil. this gearbox does not have a level plug so the only way to ensure the correct level is to drain down the oil and then refill with the correct amount (2.2 litres)

I have attached a picture showing the drain bung, i will also send an image of the filler.

What weight would the oil be?


The oil is around 1 kg per litre, but the specification is not normally given in weight so it would be difficult to be precise on this.


Customer: replied 14 days ago.
What numbers do we need for the oil as there about 3 types for Peugeot 3008 hd I manual


The manual transmission oil is GL4+
