Changing 6 spd Trans Fluid

When I refill my 6 spd trans do I have to remove the shift tower to refill? How much do I put in?

no you do not need to remove the shifter. There are 2 plugs in the tranny. The bottom drain plug and the upper fill plug (on passenger side) Fill through fill plug until fluid is level with bottom of hole (pretty much the same as if you were adding fluid to a rearend.) You do not want fluid to be running out excessively but you want enough you can feel it with your finger inside the case.
