TIP: Pour 2L of gear out in through the shifter hole before you put the shifter back in.
Did the original poster mean to say oil? And just to clarify, is it really safe to pour the GL-4 gear oil into the hole where the stick shift was?

I currently have everything back together. I have yet to add the oil that drained out when I pulled the propeller shaft out of the rear of the transmission.

I called the nissan dealer serviced department today and they confirmed the fluid that leaked out was gear oil. I've seen other videos where people remove a bolt in order to fill the gear oil in a transmission but this method of pouring the gear oil into the stick shift hole seems too too too convenient... Can anyone confirm this?
