C70 auto tranny dipstick?

    Just bought a 2001 C70 turbo. Great car, but I want to check fluid levels
    and had a heck of a time finding the auto tranny dip stick. I finally found
    what looks like a yellow plug deep within the driver's side of the engine
    compartment. The "plug" says ATF on it. My old 850 had a much more readily
    accessible dipstick. Am I looking at the right thing? It seems that one
    would have to remove several of the air handling pipes to get to this to
    check the fluid level, let alone add fluid.

    I'm almost thinking that there should be an extension on this????

    Thanks for your help,

    Dan in Vancouver, Wa.

    Vancouver dropped his wrench, scratched his head and mumbled,

    Nope. That's the way they came. Neat, huh?

    Yeah - right.

    Its a Volvo don't want you to service this item because after 80K
    miles they can sell you another one.

    Both times that I've serviced volvo tranny's they've been replaced within
    the next 10,000 miles. DON'T service them.
