Transmission dip stick question

I have a quick question regarding transmission dip stick.
I bought this dip stick made by KTC auto tools, part A1094. It is sedigned for the 722.6 transmissions. On the instruction it says Genuine stock No: 140 589 15 21 00.
The whole dip stick is very long, 115.5cm long. I can insert 82cm into the measuring tube. Is this a right dip stick for my 2000 S500.

I am attaching the image of the tip of the dip stick.

So my question is do I just put the dip stick as far as it goes into the hole or do I need to insert it just so much.

That is the correct dip stick and yes put it in until it stops, but the engine must be running and at working temperature when checking the transmission fluid. Temperature is important, note the temperature readings on the dipstick. 32 degrees C is the working temperature the other is for a cold transmission. When the engine is at working temperature the transmission is also.

it's also pretty important that the car is relatively level front to back and side to side when you check it.

So You Know, The Dip Stick You Just Got Is Just A Tool, For Checking Oil Level.
It's Not For Leaveing In The Cars Transmission Dip Stick Tube, You Have To Get A New LOCK CAP & LOCK PIN,

And Put The Lock Back On The Top Of The Dip Stick Tube

Thanks for the reply's. I was replacing my radiator and I thought that I will loose some ATF when I disconnect the transmission lines from radiator, but I only lost very little amount of fluid.

On the other hand, who ever filled the transmission with ATF overfilled it. Fluid level is about 10mm too high when the temp is hot. I been driving the car like this for 3 years. It has 126K miles. Should I worry about fluid being too high or just leave it?

Well IF It WAS "ME"
I Would Drop The Transmisson Oil Pan Clean Off The Magnet And Inside Of The Pan And Install A New Transmission Filter And Gasket,, And Put In The Right Amount Of Transmission Oil "AND" Only Use M-Benz Brand Oil, Nothing Else,, Get It At The Dealer Along With A New Dip Stick Lock Cap If Yours Has One.

Never Go The Cheep Way Out When Changing Your Trany OIL "NEVER"

Have Fun

P. S. If Your Doing It Yourself And Jack Up The Car PLEASE USE JACK STANDS PLEASE

Yeah I might have to change a whole transmission fluid in the few weeks.

Out of topic, but I can not find any indicators on the radiator coolant reservoir for the MAX/MIN level. Is there a MAX level indicator anywhere on the reservoir???

Good Idea On Tranny Oil Change.

Now For The Rad Water Line Water 3/4 Is About Right "HOT"
Ok

If you look down into the header tank you will see a white plastic fin, the top of the fin is the correct level.
