No there should not be any sort of special trick all you need to do is pull it straight out, it maybe a little rusty or something making it stick to the tube.

Where is located the transmission oil?


most Mercedes built in the last 12 to 15 years do not have a dip stick , only the tube. The dip stick is considered a special tool now and must be purchased from dealer.

How do i check the transmission fluid in my clk 320 and if it is low what type do i put in it


In order to check the fluid in the transmission you need the Mercedes Benz dip stick. It's a special tool needed for all the 722.6 transmissions. Best thing is probably to just stop by a Mercedes Independent shop where they can check it real quick. It uses a synthetic based fluid. I always go with the factory fluid.

My Friend has a 98 C 280. She started experiencing Transmission SLippage when going up Hill. When trying to Check Transmission Fluid I discovered there was no Dip Stick. Just some plastic cap which didn"t...


Only authorised Mercedes Benz dealers have the dip stick for your car (and you can't buy them anywhere!). So you would HAVE to go to a Mercedes dealer (and ofcourse pay an "arm & a leg" to have them check it out).
In any case, the transmission fluid in your car doesn't get replaced... ever! (yes I was shocked too) but apparently so. The fluid goes in one time and that's it... unless ofcourse you have a replacement transmission then it gets emptied and refilled.

Need to check transmission fluid on my 1999 c180 elegance.can i use engine oil dip stick


No, absolutely not. Check the transmission fluid level with the transmission dip stick. The oil level dip stick may not be the same length and the markings are not the same. Overfilling a transmission may cause damage. Do not have one then you need to get one. What has happened have you lost it?

Were do you put transmission fluid in the transmission?


You have to check the fluid from the bottom on the back side of the transmission with a special tool. So if you don't have a way of getting under the car or have a special tool to do it with then you won't be able to. You also have to fill the fluid using this same hole.

Cant find tranny dipstick


I am not sure if I remember or not , but if you were standing by the pass side tire lean over back of engine there should be 2 dip sticks the oil then right next to it but lower is the trans . you might have to reach your hand behind the pass side cyl head / intake and feel for it. and most mercedes do not come with dip sticks they have special caps on them that actualy break when removing . the dealer ships or mercedes service shops have the dip stick and new cap. so yours most likely will just have this cap not dip stick . I cant remember any late model that came with a dip stick . mercedes only wants certified techs even checking it.
