If you have the 354 gearbox, there's just one drain plug to undo. It's much better if you use a spanner like this (you'll ruin the plug otherwise):

The refill plug (same size) is on the side of the box. I find it easiest to refill the box from underneath (after removing the undertray), squeezing the oil in from one of those containers with a flexible spout. When the oil runs out of the hole on the side, the box is full.

This may help:

It shows how to fill the gearbox from above.
