Hello, I had our Beetle in for service and the dealer said that the Tranny was a sealed unit and I cannot checkthe fluid level.

The dealer is half right. It might be a sealed system but you can still service it. There is 2 bolts on the transmission. One near the top and one near the bottom. The top is where you fill and the bottom is where you drain. Since VW claimed that their transmission oil is lifetime no one thinks about changing it. But you should after about 60k miles depending on how well your drive the car. Its probably pitch black by now...it used to be light golden yellow ;) BTW the top bolt where you add transmission oil should be the full mark. So add until it drips out a little. when it does drip then its full. to check if you need to change the oil take your finger and dip in the whole and see what color the oil is.

if your finger is too fat then a Qtip would be good too.

The VW Beetle does not have clutch fluid. There is not any fluid associated with the clutch. The transmission has transmission fluid.

A 1998 VW Beetle does not have a dipstick that you can check the transmission fluid with. Instead, there is a fill tube with a red cap on the side of the transmission. Take the red cap off and that is how you check the levels on this type of vehicle.

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 isn't any way to add or check transmission fluid. The transmission is sealed. Look in your owners book to locate transmission, if there is no leaking then it is fine. You can always call a VW dealership if you are not satisfied with this answer.

It is important to use the right type of transmission fluid in a car. The 1997 F350 Diesel uses Mercon III transmission fluid.

You fill the transmission fluid on the 1988 F250 diesel at the dipstick of the transmission. You will need a filler funnel in order to keep spillage to a minimum.
