There is lots of info on that box and the weakness of the 5th. gear. It was recommended you overfill with fully synthetic gear oil.
|Pudsey_Bear||Not sure if they changed it when the updated the engine or not.|
There is a breather on the top of the gearbox, you need to fill it through that using a long thin piece of hose with a funnel in the end, when you fill it use 2.7 litres, that was the last revised recommendation from fiat on quantity.
The breather just pulls up for the lid of it to come off, that's also where it gets in.
|Griff5Litre||And as for that Griff, where do i start ?? 🤔🤔|

The bulkhead drain tube is loose and it must have been dumping water stright on top of the switch on the top of the g box. I reckon cable ties will be enough to pull it back to over the right rear of the box.
More to the point...tell us about your Griff
|pagey||get the oil changed asap the gearbox is fragile anyway just refill the box 1/4 litre above what the handbook says so that the fifth gear is protected better ...if you look at the scuttle drain just extend it down past the gearbox|
In the older Ducato's the drain pipe from the window scuttle drains via a rubber drain hose, under the bonnet right hand side, this drained directly over the gear box.
If so the pipe needs repositioning or extending away from the gearbox also the oil will need changing asap.
