It does not have a dip stick .Its a plug on the tranny the only way to check it must on level ground or a hoist and remove the plug .If the oil come out its full if none come out it can b low. best to take to a trynny shop or the dealer . Good lock

dedell is correct ... vw and audi do not make it convenient for the car owner to check the transmission fluid level. Keeps you going back to dealer ... plus it takes a special tranny fluid that costs about $20.00 per litre
