Hi Yes Chris is right there is a plug half way down the front of the box if you take this bolt out and oil runs out your level is ok if not you can fill it up from the top opening at the top end of the box and when oil starts to run out of the plug hole on the side your topped up hope this helps

Tommy,if your Espace is automatic and you have no dipstick,then the level is more involved to check.

I think I can remember reading something on here about it.....

I'll have a search and get back to you.:)

Edit;Nope,can't find it!:eek:.I don't often say this,but it might be worth contacting your local dealer.The oil level is critical in Auto boxes and I think in this instance you'd be far better advised to get it checked by someone.

no sign`s of any leaks just thought thats the reason why
gears dont seem to change correctly, or could this be another reason.
