You check and fill the transmission fluid using the same plug. --- (http://www.ehow.com/how_7434479_check-transmission-oil- volkswagen-cabrio.html) --- Make sure to get GL 4 compatible fluid, there is yellow metal (brass synchros) inside and some other spec oils (including some GL5 exclusive oils) eat away at it. They do name GL 4/5 compatible oils. Spec is 75w90. -- http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?4493969-How-to-check-fill- the-manual-transmission-fluid-level-1998-VW-Cabrio
