Manual gearbox filler plug/drain plug

Can anyone help? I have a Sportage 2008, 2.0 litre petrol, manual gearbox but cannot find where to fill or drain gearbox.

I have purchased the Haynes Manual but it does not show where the manual gearbox filler/drain is.

Does anyone have an illustration showing this, that they could e-mail to me.

Thanks in anticipation.

Remove front left tire.
Remove front left inner fender/splash shields

You will be staring at filler plug.

Not sure how different the left and right hand sided vehicles are. But, the drain plug is an EASY find. If you can't find that, then you should be working on your car and should hire someone.

Post some pictures of your transmission from underneath and from the sides. Without them, can't help you.
