Default 2002 LR Ford Focus gearbox oil change

So I was reading in the Haynes manual that my Focus fitted with the IB5 manual transmission doesn't have a a drain plug.

My question is how do I get most of the old oil out?
Will removing a driveshaft get most of the oil out or is there a better method
When dealing with this transmission?

Cheers

Does it have a fill plug ? If so, maybe you can use a large syringe & some plastic tubing to remove the old oil.

There's a fill plug. There's also a detent underneath the fill plug for the gear selector I thii
nk.

I've read others have used that plug to drain the gearbox but I have also heard others have damaged their gearbox using this method so I am a bit worried about draining via the detent.

Maybe I am better using some tubing then? I dunno.
