I find it far easier to have the workshop do it! They have the special gun to get the oil in via the gearbox dipstick tube ...

Our mechanic of some 20 years informed me that Subaru and Honda gearboxes do not like fully synthetic oil. He uses semi-synthetic. That's what I had put in Roo2's gearbox when I had the oil changed a couple of years ago. It works the same as it always has.
