    How much is it leaking? They all seem to weep a little.

    If you look on the front of the box there is butterfly screw. You fill the box up there and the level needs to be to the bottom of that hole.

    Filling it up will make it leak more, if its leaking; fix the leak.

    Re: Where can i top up the gearbox oil????

    Had a brand new steering rack fitted at the beginning of the year and it started leaking gearbox oil soon after.

    Problem was the inner drive shaft gaitor that had not been put on properly. Oil leak stopped after gaitor was fitted back correctly.

    Hope you get it sorted mate.
