I've had my C240 for about 6 months now, i've managed to do everything else service wise but i'm now stuck.
i cannot check the auto transmission fluid level as i have no dipstick, i'm told that the W202 don't have a dipstick just a cap for the filler tube ( which i also dont have) is there a workaround for checking fluid level? :confused:

Use a length of curtain wire where the fluid level should be 7 cm up the wire with the engine at 80c

You can purchase the proper dipstick on eBay.

Most of the so called genuine sticks on Ebay are no better than the wire as there is no shoulders on these copies

Inchcape on line will sell you a dipstick, you will need the P/N.

It will be a struggle to get the oil temp to 80 degrees, even after a hard drive in this weather.
