I have a 1998 Jetta and the check plug is on the left side behind the drivers front wheel. It is a indented allan plug. It is about 2-3 inches above the bottom of the transmission. This is also the fill plug or can be used to fill at least.

I have a 99 jetta, and you are unable to check the transmission fluid on your own. You will have to take it to a service station where they will check it for you for free.

Have to have a computer OB VAT Tool or Volkwagen dealer only check. The other way is to check the fluid when the engine is warm . There is a plug on the side of the transmission pan.

It don't have one. It is filled for "lifetime" with very special and expensive transmission fluid.

If its an automatic it is a sealed transmission and has to be taking to the dealer and hooked up to their computer to check the fluid level.

If you have a tdi jetta then you would have a sealed transmission, so you can not check the fluid level on those transmissions

The transmission is serviced with lifetime fluid and does not have a dipstick. The fluid can be changed by the dealership with a special tool.

Transmission Fluid Level Check Volkswagen Beetle (1998-2010) Our research indicates that your vehicle does not have a transmission fluid dipstick. These types of transmissions are designed to be maintenance free. In order to check the transmission fluid, your vehicle likely has check valve on the bottom of the transmission on the bottom of your car. Your car must be level when the fluid is checked and we therefore recommend having a mechanic with a hydraulic lift or underground bay check your transmission fluid.

There's a red tab on the transmission you pull off, then pry open a fill plug underneath. use a funnel attached to a hose.

check plug on driver side of transmission about halfway up.has indent in it that you can put the head of a bolt in.fill till fluid runs out of plug hole

There is no actual dipstick on the 1997 volkswagen jetta. The way to check the level is a little odd. Under the car on the drivers side of the engine behind the front wheel there is a plug. It can be pulled out and that is how you check the level. It is similar to checking a differential. You will need a funnel with extension hose on it to fill the fluid.

It is important to maintain the fluid levels of a car with the correct fluid types. The transmission fluid type for a 1998 VW Jetta is Universal ATF or ATF 1 fluid.
