Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
There isn't one. It is filled from underneath and a scanner is required to check fill level at a certain fluid temperature.

You can consult your Owner's Manual regarding the transmission dipstick, but don't be surprised to learn that VW has been using sealed transmissions for a number of years. I owned a '98 VX Beetle and they were using sealed transmissions way back then (and probably some years before that). Mercedes has also utilized sealed transmissions in their cars and SUVs - so it just might be a German-thing. You may be looking for a way to verify that your transmission isn't leaking, and that's a difficult task given the circunstances. Fluids on the drive are either windshield washer fluid (which readily evaporates), brake fluid (which also evaporated over a day or so, depending on volume lost), oil (which sticks around for a long time), and transmission fluid (which is mid-way between brake fluid and oil but generally reddish in color).
There is a way to access the transmission, but I do not advise attempting that since it might be a whole lot easier to gain access, but extremely difficult and expensive to re-seal thye transmission once it is opened (about a $600 - $750 job at best).

you do not say if the engine is performing properly or not. if it is low on power at all you could have excessive pressure getting past the rings and causing to much pressure in the crankcase.

SOURCE: dip stick tubing
if the end that is on the bottom of the new tubing is smooth then the old one should twist out with a bit of force no particular direction to pull off though just twisting

If your auto trans does NOT have a dipstick, you probably have what's known as an 01M transmission.
These are supposedly "sealed" units, however the fluid can be changed and/or checked, it's jut a bit more involved.
Google "Dan's VW page" for the proper procedure.

this is a so called sealed transmission, there is no dipstick, there is a fill hole on the side of the transmission, u should be able to touch the fluid with your finger with the plug removed and the trans hot.
