Open bonnet wink
Remove the breather tube from the Selespeed fluid tank cap (next to the wing on the battery side of the engine bay)
Turn on ignition (but do not start the engine)
Wait till the pump stops
Remove the Selespeed tank cap
Wipe the dipstick (located in the cap)
Place onto tank
Make one turn Anticlockwise
Lift off and take reading.
Note that the Selespeed fluid is VERY thin and can be hard to see.
There is only 0.6L of fluid in the system so a very small loss of fluid can have a big effect...
If you add slightly too much fluid don't worry, it will just eject the excess out of the breather tube.
