It depends on if it is a manual or automatic transmission. For the manual transmission, there is a 17mm Allen plug in the side of it. Crawl under car and take the plug out. You can buy a fluid pump for about $20 at an autoparts store and the 17mm Allen wrench is about $10 at sears. It is pretty easy on the manual transmission, hardest part for me was finding the 17mm Allen wrench.

Automatic transmission?? you cannot put the Transmission Fluid in by yourself you have to take it either to a V.W. dealer or someone who services these types of transmissions the fluid has to be pumped inif you notice there is no dipstick to check the fluid level that's because they use this probe the stick into your transmission to see how much fluid you have the probe costs about $1500 dollars expensiove yes keep in mind it will cost about $20 a quart the reason why I know this is because I am having problems with my transmission in my 2001 jetta if you have any more questions let me know.
