How to check the oil level on my 2007 mercedes 230

A dipstick "stopper" is present in what would normally be the dipstick tube at the rear of the engine just forward of the firewall. What I can determine using a length of aircraft control cable suitably marked with the location of the full level in the sump, is that there is a sharp bend in the tube near the bottom that would preclude the insertion of a non-flexible rod/stick. As would be expected, the local dealer suggests one visit the shop periodically to have the level verified - good grief!
I think you are looking at the gearbox oil filler, the engine oil dipstick is normally front left not rear.

Very simple. There is a oil servicing dipstick that feeds into a tube. That dipstick pokes into the transmission and this gives you a reading. The dipstick should have marks on it that says full/ is the dipstick that is towards the rear of the engine. It is the red circle looking item in this photo.
