Good day
I want to check the gearbox oil level on my Hilux D3D 3.0
I can see two places but don't want to loosen any bolts yet.
Is it on the right or on the left hand side of the box, facing towards the motor?
Apologies for the silly question

Isn't there a dip-stick for the g-box against the firewall? Not sure of this myself and don't know the vehicle, just thinking that I remember someone talking about it some time back. :think:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
