      immediatly to the right of the starter.
      Auto trans fluid change or flush will not make a trans fail. Stop spreading the wives tale/urban myth.

      Thanks Richard!

      isnt the starter a part of the engine? How do I see the starter to begin with?..I opened the hood and looked...I can see a cover on top of the engine...cant read it from outside as the cover seems to be getting in the way.... ...Do I have to open the cover by removing the screws on top of it?
      Thanks,
      Aby

      I have a 2001 tdi, should the code be in the same spot? Looked to the right of the starter and can't see it.
