Hi Cooksi they do say that the gear oil should not be changed unless there is something wrong or the oil is contaminated but do not get me wrong i feel that it will not do the box any wrong what so ever iam sorry i do not know what oil your car uses but if you phone Renault iam sure they will tell you,iam also unsure of what type of plug is at the bottom of the box for draining the oil but it will either be a socket or a torque set thats the star type sockets but iam unsure,when you are filling the box back up from the top of the box but first you will need to unscrew the top filler plug there is another plug half way down the front side of the box and when oil starts to run out you will then have your level but some do not have this at the side so you would first need to know what amount it takes and i do not know this either but if you still have all the handbooks it should tell you all the best Donald.
