Mini Transmission Fluid

I have a 2007 Mini. I would like to know how to check the transmission fluid. I don’t find a dip stick for the transmission under the hood. Thanks.

Owner’s manual.

Many vehicles these days don’t have a dip stick.
I know my 06 Escape hybrid CVT transaxle needs to have a wheel off, pull a splash shield, and pull out the fill plug and check with your finger tip.
Welcome back to the future.
