Depending on which gearbox you have, there is a different means of filling it, most of them involve getting under the car, pulling a plug bolt and adding oil through it. Some of them are counter intuitive, i.e. what looks like a drain plug is actually the base of a verticle tube that spills out as you add oil to indicate that it is full. Have a look at the Transmission pan and count how many bolts hold it to the transmission body. Let us know and we can take you further.
