for some reason, the bottom of drain fluid nut back out by it self on the highways and he lost all the fluid to his automatics tranny. I try to see if there is a fill hole some where we can fill in the fluid to help him, but for the life of me, I can't seem to find it, and search the internet give me the endless information I don't need.

my question is does 1.8t B5 A4 auto tranny have a fill hole some where or it need that special tool ? if there is a hole for fill the fluid then with side is it on and what size of tools he will need? this person just long way from home and I am just try to figure out something so he can be back on the road. I know on my manual 6 speed s4, drain hole on the bottom and filled hole on the driver side I just fill it with a long tube with no special tools

edit, I think I found it... maybe this is it http://forums.audiworld.com/showthread.php?t=2797651

Basically you need to put the drain plug back in, pull the large fill plug and pump in fluid until it runs out. Then you start the car, top it off again. Then run through the gears and top it off once more. Then you leave the fill plug out and wait until the fluid reaches 40C. It will push fluid out as the fluid warms up and expands. This will take a few minutes. Then you put the fill plug in, and you can finally shut off the engine. If fully drained it will take 4-5 qts of ATF.

The ATF is special golden fluid. Pentosin ATF1 or genuine Audi fluid only. Also, you need to have a hand pump to pump the fluid in, and it must have a angled tip nozzle. If you don't have vag-com to watch the temperature, just make sure you drain and fill it cold. It will be slightly overfull, but the difference is only a few ounces and will not cause a problem.
