Mein Auto: 1994 740iL
94 740iL - Transmission fill? GEAR?

Hello,
I drive a 1994 740iL with the "LIFETIME FILL" A5S 760Z Transmission.

I need to add some fluid, I have the proper fluid, know where it is filled, and how to fill it except for ONE MAJOR FACT . When topping it off during the fill I need to find out ----what position the transmission needs to be in when checking for the proper level (with engine running, and correct fluid temperature etc) I realize it will overflow at the proper fill level.

But is that when transmission is in Drive, Neutral, or Park?

The Bentley Service Manual does NOT specify a TRANSMISSION LEVER GEAR POSITION to place car in when refilling/checking for the proper fluid level and I do not have access to a real BMW shop manual. I have 103,000 miles on the car and I have a "Transmission" warning light on. The Bently Service manual suggests the problem is due to low fluid. I do see evidence of a small leak at the front of the case.

So guys please tall me , What position to place the transmission gear level in?
Thanks, and where is the E 32 forum located?

Thanks,
Joe

BMW pdf I found says to check level in Park after running thru each gear-(pausing in each one to fill the passages)- then pulling the plug while in in Park with the AC on to raise the idle.

PDF is too big to attach.
