Where is the filler plug ????
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
My original question is where is the filler plug, so if you can't tell me that that will be all thanks.

As explained above it part of the drain plug .

To fill you need a pump to pump in the fluid though the drain plug which is a two part piece .

The yellow shaded part is what you remove to fill ,the blue part is what you remove to drain .
