w201 Auto transmission fluid and filter change

I have a servcie cd and it says when i do a fluid and filter change i should drain the fluid out of the torque converter via the drain pulg on the converter. So when i go back to fill the transmission back up with fluid via the dip stick tube will the torque converter fill back up then?

Apologies for interrupting.
Nice web site but I could not find the pictures you refer to.

If it's like my (722.369) transmission, you'll drain out about 7 quarts from the pan and torque converter. Measure how much is drained out. To refill (per MB shop manual instructions), pour in 4 qts, start the engine, then pour in the remaining charge. Both transmission case and torque converter will be refilled during this procedure.
