Default In dire need of help: Transmission fill stuck

I cannot for the life of me open the MTR filler of my transmission.

Not sure how to approach this now..

Is there another way to fill the transmission?

6-speeds can be filled through the turret - I've never had my fill plug out. 5-speeds must be filled through the plug - if it were life-or-death you could fill it through the back if it were stood on end.

Sav, how do you know when you have enough fluid in the 6 speed? Pour in as much as what came out? Or do you have a certain amount you use?

Just pour in the required amount for the 6speed.. which is think is 1.9 quarts.
