Hi All,
3.2 V6 Petrol - 2004
I was looking in my owners manual but can't see any reference to transmission fluid level. How do I check the transmission fluid?

Just Googled touareg + "transmission fliud level"

According to this link and others, the VW box is sealed for life and needs no attention to 100K+.

Personally I'd prefer to be able to check it and replace the fluid just one does with engine oil but hey-ho, this is the way of the world now.

Anywway, here you go:

Many thanks for the answers.
I suppose leave well alone, or if it ain't broke don't fixed it is a good motto - but as someone brought up on regular oil checks and changes 100k seems an awfully long stretch!
Mine has only done 21k so might ask my garage to do a change when I have the cam belt done - not sure when that should be either?
