Yep, I have one of those, but what a mess it makes!
It's only due to this thread that I wondered if using the vent pipe were feasible - worth a try?

I modified one with a schrader valve fitted to the cap. Pressurise it and top up the box. :y

Unclear Shackeng - you mean a valve on the sprayer?

How did it make a mess?

I managed to stay clean and free of 'eau de ATF' when I dropped the sumps and changed the filter on my Elite .

Interesting to see a LHD bonnet layout. Brake master cylinder obviously above brake pedal, but power steering reservoir in usual place and presumably everything else; maybe wiper layout reversed.

Yes, by sawing off the bottom section of the hand pump (mine was a Killaspray), and fitting a schrader valve in it. Then just pressurise to whatever you feel lucky with. ::) I use about 40psi, which is plenty to fill the box from empty. :y
I also use it for all my other spraying requirements on another bottle. It saves all that tedious pumping. :y

You're right, it is LHD, imported from Germany.
