the popular way to check seems to be stretching a rubber glove around the oil filler neck and if it inflated when idling something needs doing!

The core plug is completely inaccessible and cannot even be inspected without removing the gearbox. There is no preventative maintenance that can be done.

The problem is binary, it is either OK or it has failed.
