Hi yes you are right the small tube with the red plastic lid is where you top up the automatic fluid from, the red cap will have a plastic clip holding around it between the red cap and the tube, these are very tight and can snap when you prize them off, once off you can then remve the red cap and top up the automatic gearbox oil accordingly, please be aware this is only a small filler tube and can take quite along time to fill up, i hope this helps Chris
