manual gearbox filler plug

Where can I find the filler plug? I only see a plug with a sensor.

The synchromesh of the second gear is weak off and on. I suppose some dirt in the oil after 100.000 miles. I can not find the filler plug. Anybody?

I presume it's the standard Ford IB5 manual gearbox, in which case it's the hex plug behind the gear change linkage.

These are of a Fiesta Mk6 TDCI with IB5 box

If the bottom is all covered in oil, like in the bottom photo then it is the seal on the Gear selector shaft.
