Oils and lubricants

Is there any information on this forum regarding the following.
Gearbox(manual) oil specification and amount.
Transfer box oil specification and amount
Diff oil specification and amount.

By reading a number of posts I think all 3 can use fully synthetic 75w90 gl4-gl5. However there does not seem to be anywhere the amount in litres is posted.

I have recently purchased a 2013 Diamond 4x4 with full service history 61000 miles and there is no mention of changing or even checking these fluids. Further investigation I found they are not part of standard Vauxhall servicing.

Hi from experience the gearbox is around 2.4 litres, transfer box I think is about a litre and the back axle about .8 of a litre. The transfer and the back axle you fill to the overflow level, but the gearbox you need to put the specific amount in from empty. There are a few posts on here that talk about this. Richy

Did you manage to confirm the levels in your driveline ?
I am in the process of purchasing the fluids to change mine. Out of curiosity which fluids did you purchase ?

Thanks Glenn.
