On my 2011 OB , is there any way to check fluid level on the Cvt transmission? I looked and didn't see a dipstick?

From everything I have read the CVT is a sealed unit with no way to check the fluid.

Actually, the repair manual gives a procedure for checking it. The transmission has to be running and at 35 to 45 degrees centigrade (95 to 113 Fahrenheit).

After running it through the gears P-R-N-D, then D-N-R-P, you pull the fill plug (With the engine still idling) and check that the level is at the bottom of the hole.

Not an easy job.......Maybe one to let the dealer handle with an oil change........If you trust them to actually do it.
