In order to check or change trans fluid on BMW vehicles with no dipstick a hoist or set of ramps is needed. Remove upper plug in drain pan under the vehicle. make sure vehicle is running for level inspections. Do not run vehicle if draining fluid!

proper level of oil when vehicle running is level with opening in side of trans oil pan.

Cant find my transmission dip stick?

On the manual transmission the dip stick is also the speedometer cable mount. When you remove the cable from the back side which is between the motor and firewall you will see the dots on the housing that holds the speedo gear. This is also where you refill the trans. I think it is easiest to just drain the trans and put the recommended amount it takes to fill it.

All you can do in your driveway is drop the trans pan, replace the trans filter, replace the trans pan gasket, install pan (no gasket sealer needed or required!) and refill what fluid drained out in the process which is aprox half of the fluid the trans holds. Take it to a trans shop if you want a complete fluid change. They will have the equipment to do a trans flush.
