I own a 2016 250hp G2. The owner’s manual does not provide instructions on how to add Gear Oil to the reservoir. I believe you need to take the tube off the top of the "site window" and add. Is this correct? 2nd Question, how do you replace the gear oil? My old Evinrude had screws at the top and bottom of the lower unit. G2's don't have this. Any help/guidance would be appreciated.
The plug is behind the front water inlet screens.
Gearcase only – 38.9 fl. oz. (1180 ml)
Gearcase, vent hose and oil reservoir 45.6 fl. oz. (1350 ml)
Carefully remove vent hose from the reservoir
upper fitting. Remove the low water intake screens. Then
remove the lubricant drain/fill plug. Drain the lubricant
from the gearcase into a suitable container.
Trim the engine up slightly to completely drain
lubricant from the gearcase. Use shop towels to
clean up any spilled oil.
Inspect the lubricant for metal chips. The presence
of metal fuzz can indicate normal wear of
the gears, bearings, or shafts within the gearcase.
Metal chips can indicate extensive internal damage.
Secure the gearcase in a vertical position.
Use Gearcase Filler, P/N 501882, to slowly fill the
gearcase with HPF PRO lubricant until lubricant
level in the reservoir is between the marks as
IMPORTANT: Filling the gearcase too quickly
can cause air pockets and the gearcase may not fill
Clean plug seal area and install the lubricant
drain/fill plug and a new seal. Tighten the plug to a
torque of 60 to 84 in. lbs. (7 to 9.5 N·m).
Install the water screens. Tighten the screw to a
torque of 10 to 14 in. lbs. (1.2 to 1.6 N·m).
Pulled the front screens and there is no low drain to add or replace gear case oil. G2's are different from ETEC's. Owners manual says 5yrs under normal recreactional use. That is fine, but I'd like to know how to add & change the gear case oil on my own. Seems like a simple question, but suspect the G2 models are so new that knowone has tried to do this themselves.

Did you read the previous post that gave step by step instructions?
