How To Check Gearbox Oil?

I am probably paranoid, and I am used to driving cars with the windows up and lots of sound deadening. But, I am noticing a whine noise on overrun from the gearbox, especially in second gear. With a big trip to France coming up, how do I check the gearbox oil level.

As I say, its probably just because I have the windows open in this weather and its a van, but don't want to be worrying about it on the 8 hour drive to the Dordogne. Thanks for any advice.

Thanks for the answer

Sorry I should have said. It's a 5 speed 102 engine euro6, late 2016 on a 66 plate.

What is the bevel box?
