Dont know and Dont know.

what do know is that the engines 1.1 to 1.6 use the R65 gearbox that uses the normal EP75/80 gearbox oil 99% on other manual gearboxes in the world use.

1.8 to 2.0 use the PG1 gearbox which uese MTF94 oil.

As long as you empty the box first you'll be safe to put 2 litres in. Usually 2 one litre bottles.
If it's an R65 which it will be if it's a 214 or a 216 the easiest way to fill is via the black breather cap on top of the box.

on a PG1 gearbox yes, that oil can not be used in it, MTF94 oil must be used.

local motorfactor should stock it.

failing the B*W mini uses the same gearbox oil, I think, not 100% on that.
