Hello
to add more oil you use a small hand pump into the fill plug ( the dealer has a special too l for this)
but its well detailed here

That does not apply to my car. I have the audi 2010 a4 8 speed automatic transmission. I need to know where the fill hole is.

as its shows the fill hole just on the front LHS side just above the plastic oil pan gasket line

Still not the same. Audi A4 2010 1.8T 8 speed automatic transmission.
Expert:  Matt replied 2 years ago.
Ok
having dug a little deeper the drain plug on the underside is also the fill point
if you look at this image
http://www.incarmotorfactors.co.uk/2632/special-offers-zf-8hp45-transmission-oil-service-kit-bmw-8-speed-automatic-1090298006.jpg
it shows that there's a stand pipe above the drain plug hole so you use a pump with a long pipe to poke through the hole and fill the pan back up to the level of the stand pipe until it overflows

I will take a picture from my cars transmission. None of the pictures provided looks like mine. It has a T55 bold at the bottom which looks like the draain plug.

the drain and fill plug is the same T55 / allen key screw cap
