SLK 230 Trans fluid level

I plan on changing my trans filter and gasket. How do you check the fluid level without a dipstick? Also what do you adjust for firmer shifts?

Better question for the SLK area of the roadster section. But if your car is like mine, you need a dipstick "tool" because there is not one in the tube. If you have a way to accurately measure the fluid you lose you could replace exactly that amount but using the tool is a better method. If you have a driver adaptive transmission, there are steps to re-set it to the factory settings and those should be firmer.
