Default 6mt Gearbox dipstick - G3 STi.

Car is a 2008 -14 G3 STi hatch.

I noticed my gearbox has no visible dipstick where they are normally found on the older models I have seen.

Does anyone know, or can they have a look at theirs and let me know if you have one please?

They should be visible from the drivers side underneath the top mount IC. On my box there is just a large hex head style plug visible.

Did they stop using them in my model or has mine been deleted for some reason??

Cheers.

There is no dipstick on our model, only a filler plug, ita torx style bolt on passenger side of the box. I forgot the size of socket u needed.

U need to fill the oil with a transfer pump ($25 from repco) to the bottom of the filler hole, car needs to be flat, ie on four jack stand or hoist.

you can also feed some thin hose in from the top and use a funnel from the top to fill it up. just keep pouring it in till it comes out the fill hole.
