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

      I know if you have a 2.0 or a tdi you have a 01m. But if you have a 1.8T or a 2.8 it "could" be a 09A.

      See following link.

      Even easier than raising the hood and seeing the engine size would if you have the "tip" feature then you have 09A if not you have 01m.

      I cant find where to fill the transmission on my 2003 1.8T Jetta, I have a 09A auto transmission. There is a plastic cap on the pan at the front of the trans, is this it?
