There's no automatic tranmission dipstick or even a place to add fluid. You'll need to go to service shop/dealer believe it or not.

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.

I can't Find my transmission dipe stick on a 1999 vw jetta


Best Answer - Chosen by Asker 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.

How to check transmission fluid level


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.

Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 2002 VW Jetta?


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.

How do I check the transmission fluid level 2002 Jetta Tdi ?


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.

Transmission fluid check on a vw jetta tdi


Never ever bring a jetta to a volkwagen dealer. They will bend you over and rape you.

All you have to do is remove the top plug with a hex wrench.
