Transmission fluid level
« on: November 09, 2007, 09:53:46 AM »
I have a 73 MGB-GT and I'm trying to locate the entrance to get to the dip stick to check the level of the transmission fluid.  Is it underneath the carpet?

It is located behind the radio console on the transmission hump.  You usually have to pull back the carpeting to expose the transmission dip plug.  Pull it out to check the fluid.

Adding to Frank's note, the dipstick is well below the floor level and often difficult to grab with your fingers.  You might want to make a small hook from a heavy wire coat hanger to grab the top loop of the dipstick and then tie a piece of nylon cord to that before you put it back (and leave the end of the cord sticking out of the floor plug) to make later retrieval easier.
