Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
If this is an automatic the only correct way to check the trans fluid is with a scanner,no more sticks. but if you are mechanic inclined on the trans oil pan there is a hole with a big nut in it if you take that nut out with the car at about normal operating temperature a little bit of oil should come out,if it does the level is fine if not you need to add,this is a special trans fluid so get it from your vw dealer. let me know how it goes ,thanks

This is complicated.... Ok, your right, no dip stick is there! This is how it works.
Underneath the car, there is a plug (11mm) on the transmission case on the passenger side. It is about 3" up from the pan edge and on the front side of the case. With the engine running in PARK, remove this plug. If trans fuild doesn't run out of the hole, the level is low. Pour it in the hole on top (where the red cap is) until the fluid runs out - all while the car is running. Once it is roughly dribbling out, the trans is considered full. replace plug. Your done!!
Easy ehh? Dexron III fluid

there is no dipstick it's a sealed unit dealer only.sorry a lot of vehicle manufacturers have went to this sealed style some ford suv's,tacomas,dodge chargers challengers and magnums.just a few off tof of my head.it's one of those BETTER DESIGNS THEY ARE ALWAYS COMING UP WITH TO MAKE YOU BURN UP A 5000 DOLLAR UNIT IN HOPES OF SELLING ANOTHER TRUCK TO REPLACE THE ONE THATS TORN UP.....SORRY oh ya the transfer case has a regular old check plug 28 mm i think don't quote me could be a 30 or 32 also they changed up on those.
