dependents on which transmission you have.
for the 01M there is a black cap with a red locking plastic ring around it. and the instruction says to check fluid when it is at operating temp. Car in level surface and fill till it drains out of the stand pipe on the bottom of the drain plug. (its a drain plug and a stand pipe in one )

Yea the word LifeTime have been discussed to death on this forum regarding the VW's claim to Lifetime... Even the "real" manufacture (I think it was Aisin or something) of these 01M transmissions says 40k or was it 60k.. VW's claim of life time is the life warranty of this car.. something to that extend, you can google that discussion here for a laugh. 01M is easy, the tiptonic is also pretty easy. plenty of DIY and youtube videos. Material cost is/was about $100 or less I think... fluid, seal, filter, and save the spacers from old seal..
