There is a drain plug in the bottom of the gearbox.Remove this and allow to drain for as long as you have patience to wait for!.If you can,replace the washer around the drain plug as this is where the plug seals to.(Obviously collect the old oil and dispose of in the proper'll need a container that holds 3 litres or more).

Once the gear box has drained and you've replaced the plug,look at the front of the gearbox.You should be able to see a plastic wing nut headed bolt.Remove this,and with the car on level ground,refill the box until the oil starts to drip out of the hole.Replace the plastic bolt and it's job done!.

If you want details on which oil should be used or pictures of the drain plug and level plug locations,then get back to me......

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
