Manual box? I've read this on http://www.automd.com/ It should be about half way up on the inboard side( is the filler / level plug). Just take this out and if oil comes out then none needed.If you do need to top it up then just fill (get one of the bottles with the spout) it until the oil starts to come out.
Same goes for the transfer box also. Though check you get the right oil for each as I think they are different.

The wrong kind of oil can cause all kinds of problems. automotive dealerships in your area should be able to help you out. Then you can put in more oil with confidence.

be careful, buy proper oil and at an authorised shop only! I used to buy not exactly suitable brand and had some troubles with my vehicle afterwards.

Wot he said.

I find fully synthetic gives much better results - and get it from the Difflock store.
