    Inspection plug, look on the top of your box and you'll see a threaded hole. That's it.

    lol, I found the one off mine in the engine bay last weekend. It plugs the hole for the timing inspection. Me and a mate found the hole and he thought it might be to top the gear oil up. Good job we didn't as it's a new clutch jobby if you do this

    Here is a pic of where it goes

    Apparently they just fall out. This topic reminds me I need to refit mine
