1 Answer

10

Will since its a german car your talking about .unlike domestic cars you dont add the fluid to the front where the engine componet is .sometimes certain models have a seperate tansmission so what you should do is that crawl under car and locate the transmission and unplug the 17mm allen plug in the side of it and filler up there. Hopefully this helps.I really dont know much about german cars but this is what i know.
