It doesn't have one.
These cars dont have a transmission dipstick, because vw says the fluid is lifetime.
There is no dipstick for the transmisson. There is a plug on the side of the transmission oil pan
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.
How do I check transmition fluid n 98 vw jetta vr6 2.8
It don't have one. It is filled for "lifetime" with very special and expensive transmission fluid.
There is no dipstick for a manual. Checked from underneath the car on the upper side of the transmission. Remove plug to check level.
From what I know and have heard, the automatic trans on this car is sealed. Meaning there's no dipstick.
at your local vw dealer . rip off'sThere isn't a dipstick. I looked it up and the Jetta has had the dipstick eliminated. Apparently you need access to certain software OR you have to go to a dealer.
Sorry you have to be a chosen one to check the fluid level . Need the volkswagen tool. Uses the OB Connection with VAT software.
I know for all the cars we have had ,that if it is an automatic transmission you have to pour the transmission fluid down the Transmission dipstick (where you check the fluid at), But if your car is a 5 speed manual you have to check the fluid under the car and pour it in there. The system is a closed system, its meant to last the life of the transmission. This being said there is no dipstick at all on an automatic jetta I'm not sure of the years but the 97's don't have one. There is an area where a dipstick can be added in the front of the transmission near the radiator you will have to look for it and you can buy the $19.00 mod piece on eBay or elsewhere.
i had the same problem. but guess what a 99 jetta doesnt have a dipstick for the tranny fluid it has a sealed lifetime transmission fluid. so you dont have to worry about it. i was going to change it and the mechanic asked "are you sure you want to do that?" i chuckled and asked why and he said that its like 400 dollars to change the fluid. i then choked and walked out the door. lol hope that helps
