SOURCE: 2004 VW Jetta engine compartment fuze box location

one is located over the battery, the other is located in the side of the dash.

First panel:
If you pop your hood the battery will be on your right sid in the front of the engine bay. There is a small rectangular piece on top of the battery with a lot of heavy guage red wires going to it. That is the engine bay fuse box.

Second panel:
if you open your driver side car door it's under neath a panel located inbetween the door and the dash board.

SOURCE: I want 2 change 2004 mercury mountaineer transmission fluid

The best way to change it is to flush it out You can do it yourself, but I do not recommend. A shop that is good like a Monro or Firestone usually charges about 100 bucks to flush and that includes the fluid. If you do it yourself, you will save about 60 dollars, but you risk damage to your radiator.

you will need a hose and an adapter. you back out the lower, or upper cooler line for your trans, whichever is the easiest to get to, (Some trucks have an auxiliary engine oil cooler, but make sure you are flushing the trans lines) put the adapter into the rad where you removed the line, and put a hose from each one down into a bucket. Have about 14 qt's of ford trans fluid ready. Put the funnel into the trans dip stick, and start the engine. pour the qts into the dipstick tube while the old fluid is pumped into the bucket. When you have about two gallons pumped into the bucket shut the engine off and reattach the line into the radiator. start up the engine and check your level. Fill with additional fluid if needed.

note: some say you should drop the pan. two things, you only change half the fluid when you do it that way, and second if you need to change the filter because it is clogged, it is too late for the transmission. The filter is only there to protect the valve body, not keep the fluid clean.

Hope this helps

2001 vw jetta changing trans oil


Your 2001 VW Jetta is likely equipped with a "sealed" transmission unit. There is no dipstick that you can use to measure the level of transmission fluid in sealed transmissions. Unfortunately, it's a dealer item that needs to be addressed by a qualified mechanic or at a VW dealer.

How do you add transmission fluid to a 2007 VW Jetta 2.5L?


There is a brass colored plug facing skyward on the left (US driver's) side at the rear of the 6 speed automatic transmission. This plug is removed with a Torx tool (I cannot recall but is in the range of a #40). This plug provides a direct access to the case of the transmission and if you can find a suitable small funnel (I made an adapter) with a small piece of fuel line, etc. you can introduce ATF into the tranny. The transmission holds about 5 liters of special VW fluid. All the transmission experts I have talked to say to use the VW fluid. It is expensive but less expensive than a new valve body, etc. There is a overflow tower in the drain plug. I changed the fluid by dropping the pan. There is a magnetic plate trap in the pan. It will be covered with metallic particles. VW is dead wrong about "fluid for life". Change it at 80K to 85K miles.

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

How do i check the tranny fluid level in my 2001 jetta


The average consumer cannot check transmission fluid in the 2000 VW jetta. You must go to a dealership for this service. The problematic transmissions are factory sealed and touted to be 'maintenance free' with the fluid port capped by the manufacturer. The 2000 Jettas (as well as other model years) are notorious for early transmission replacement. Do not expect the VW corp to take care of any transmission issues unless you force them to.

Transmission fluid for vw jetta


Go to volkswagen for the fluid.
I am assuming you are talking about an automatic transmission? if so any aftermarket fluid will make short work of your transmission.

if you are talking about a manual transaxle..then I hear good things about Redlines' MT fluid
