the trans fluid can only be serviced through a standpipe in the pan with car in the air and trans at an exact temp,<needs to be on a monitor computer> it also uses special fluid not any of the normal fluids. this fluid is suposed to be "lifetime" fluid that doesn't need servicing unless there is a leak or a trans failure.

There is no "dipstick for the VW Beetle transmission". This is a dealer check/repair item. The unit is typically sealed, but can have a leak if the seal on top of the transmission fails. About a $700 repair. This happened on my 1998 VW New Beetle.

Remove the plug, #1, in the bottom of the oil pan and see if any fluid comes out. If it does then it is full. If it does not come out then you need to add some. The transmission fluid temp needs to be at 95-113 degrees. If you need to add fluid do it in the tube, #3 .
