Where is the manual transmission fill hole?

im in the process of changing gear oil and i cant find the fill hole, i really am i noob when it comes to cars so if you could describe it to me and pictures would be great. Like is it located under the vehicle or is it best to go in from under the hood?

thanks ryan

The manual transmission fill plug is mounted high on the passenger's side of the case. You will need a hand pump to add oil to it. I do not have a picture of unfortunatly.

It will be under the veichle next to the muffler pipe towards the back of the tranny

I added a pic i found online. I circled the fill plug

Didn't the 90 have a BA-10/5? If so the fill is on the pass sidem just inside the skid plate.

I it's an AX-15 it's on the drivers side about the same place.

underneath!!

Yeah just did this a few months back myself... the manual filler hole is easier to reach underneath... ther is a filler hole on the drivers side and a drian hole on the passenger side... once you are under there you should see them pretty easily... if you can get a hold of one i'd suggest getting a fluids hand pump (10-15$) makes the job a lot less messy...

He got neither. He's sporting a 1990 4 cyl so it's the AX-5.
