    Dont know about the level bung but the fill hole is on the top of the box, take the battery off and the battery holder and you will se it, its an allen key bolt.

    There's a level checking plug on the back of the diff housing about half way up, and you fill it through another plug near where the hydraulic feed for the clutch enters the box.

    IMPORTANTO - Check to see if either of these plugs have a yellow mark on them - these need to be overfilled by 0.5litres as per a VX mod on these boxes. If so, fill till it dribbles out of the level check hole, replace the plug and then add another 0.5litres.
