Right so I want to change my gearbox oil. A few questions.

-Where is the filler plug?
-When is the drain plug?
-How much oil do I need to buy if I am draining and replacing?
-Any recommendations for good oil?

That is all, help would be appreciated.

if its the same as a 9n then its a 17mm allen key and the drain is at the bottom of the box and the fill is at the front about half way up the box. Be carful that you dont round off the plug as I did or you'll have to pour the oil back in throught the reverse likg switch!... Motul gear 300 75w-90 ester oil is what I used in my 1.9ltr capacity box... Take a look at my post... http://www.clubpolo....howtopic=275454

If you check my thread http://www.clubpolo....howtopic=274064
Theres a guide near the bottom on my 6n2 gti. Chances are it's the same or very similar.
