mk 2 gearbox turret oil reservoir

 I have a 1998 Mk2 1.6.  I have read that there is some form of oil reservoir at the base of the gear lever.  Can anyone tell me how I get at it to check the oil level.please?

Centre console out, gearknob off, gearlever gaitor off, top gealever boot off, bottom boot undone, gearlever out, look at oil level.

It is purely to keep the linkages lubricated so as long as there is some then you’re good. Good opportunity to examine the gearlever boots, they are prone to splitting and should be replaced if so.
