Gearbox Oil Change

Hi All,
Can someone tell me how tight the oil fill screws have to be in the housing?

I want/need to change the oil but wonder if I need an impact driver to undo and then redo the ports up.

Many Thanks in Advance.

Orve.

Tighten them firmly. New sealing washers or O-rings would be a good idea.
