Hey guys,

My 2001 ml320 is leaking transmission fluid and I want to top it off before I bring it to the dealership for a transmission fluid change. I was looking in the engine bay and don't see a tube for me to add the transmission fluid. (i know it suppose to be sealed for life and it doesn't have a dipstick). can anyone help and tell me where it is? thanks

They change the location of the tube on different years, but usually it is at the firewall slightly on passenger side.
You can use 1/8" steel cable as a dipstick. There are several pictures of measurements on the forum.

The cap looks like the one in the photograph, which I
just replaced this weekend.

There is a red clip on that cap hole. You need to break
the red tab, and push the remaining plastic red
clip down, and out, with a thin nail or wire. Then
the cap will be able to pop out.

In reality, you just need the red securing clip
and re-use the cap, but I don't remember if they
sell them separately..

You need a funnel to avoid spilling fluid around,
and make sure you use the appropriate fluid. There
are fluid additives that are very important for the
correct operation of the automatic transmission..
