Drive the car 10-20 miles to heat up the gear oil then drain immedeately and that should flush out the box pretty good.  You
might want to repeat once with a clean fill of cheap oil.  I like to run Redline MTL (GL4) in my 020 transaxle, if you can't
find it locally, I have an on-line source for it on my page:
