I can not find the stick to check the transmission fluid. Where is it at? I was suppose to have an additional book w/car but since it was bought used I did not know I was suppose to have an additional book. So, I have nothing much on the transmission. Can you help me. ASAP Thank you.
Re: 2002 VW Jetta/ can't find the dipstick to check
The bonnet being refrenced is the big plastic cover in the center, you have to take that off via 2-3 nuts holding it down then look to the upper drivers side of the motor there is a white or red handled dipstick , tada, also if you need to add trans. fluid it has to be done through that tiny hole.

Volkswagen does not
have a dipstick. The fluid level is set by attaching a computer or
scanner to the car. When the fluid is at 35 degree's there should be
fluid pouring out the Level adjustment hole.
Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for
checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of
the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the
side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain
pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for
pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.
There is no dip stick, if it is an automatic transmission the fluid level is checked by removing a plug on the bottom of the atx pan.The vehicle must be hooked up to a scan tool first because the fluid must be checked at a certain temperature due to expansion of the fluid. I would call around to shops in your area and ask if they have the equipment/knowledge. The correct level is very important for proper operation of the transmission.
Jetta's 2006 carry sealed gear box. There is no dip stick to check the transmission fluid. Per manufacturer, transmission fluid requires to change unless there is any issue with transmission. I hope this helps.
the automatic transmission fluid must be checked by a VW dealer. there is no dipstick. the transmission fluid must be moitored b y a scan tool at a certain temp. If the incorrect fluid is added, transmission failure may occur. Recommend a good VW dealer for this issue.
Incorrect. There is no dipstick, but it's not sealed. On the front of the trans there is a 17mm allen head fill hole. On the lower driverside there is a drain. Don't have a 17mm? The lugnuts for the wheels are 17mm. Flip a lug nut in the allen and put a flat wrench on it.
No special tools, no special fluid and no special computers.
