I have a large number of subsites that are similar. I want to make a global change to the sidebar navigation menu on all of these subsites. By change i want to add a new link. I have looked and i cannot seem to find anycode to help me do this.

Im using Sharepoint 2013 with CSOM and C#, but help with any programming language would be great to get me in the right direction.

Do you mean the quick launch. You may wanna try this code -

private static void AddNode(string url)

        ClientContext context = new ClientContext(url);


        //Fetching website's Left Navigation node collection

        NavigationNodeCollection qlNavNodeColl = context.Web.Navigation.QuickLaunch;

        //Create a new node

    NavigationNodeCreationInformation newNavNode = new NavigationNodeCreationInformation();

    newNavNode.Title = "Google";

    newNavNode.Url = "https://www.google.com"; //URL must always start with http/https


    catch (Exception)
        //Handle exception

Source : Add/Update/Delete nodes from QuickLaunch
