Silly question time - transmission dipstick

Hi all,

I have a 1974 240d w115 - 616 engine. Manual transmission.

Where the heck is the dipstick for the tranny fluid? Is there one?

Not sure about your car, but I owned a couple manual cars and none of them had the dipstick. They were filled until the fluid came out (1991 Laser RS, 2002 WS6).

yup usually on the opposite side from the shift linkage about 3/4 way up the body, ner the tail shaft you should find the fill plug, the drain will be near the bottom, often in a cutout for full drainage...
