I'm looking for buy dipstick to check transmission fluid. Maybe somebody might know which one is the best?
The transmission model is 722.9. Amazon and Ebay have many different ones but is no one is fitting for the R350. I don't have a chance right now to check if my car has tube for a transmission dipstick, maybe somebody can help me.
Thank You

This vehicle doesnt have a dipstick. And i dont think there is no place to put the dipstick even if you wanted to retrofit one. Are you leaking fluid?

I went under the car (W251 R280 CDI) today to check what appears to be a transmission leak, I was wondering if anyone can comment on whether this might be a known issue? The culprit appears to be one of the hoses but its difficult to tell. I have attached some photos.

How is the transmission serviced on this model if there is no dipstick tube? What I mean is, how is the filling done and how is the level checked to ensure it's not under/overfilled?

Thanks a lot
