Just a FYI, the dipstick for a 2005-12 Nissan Pathfinder 4.0 with the RE5RO5A transmission will work. You'll have to remove all but the mounting tab at the transmission end. I just finished up installing one in my 2014 Q60X.

A few images of my install. The dipstick will be located in a different location and it has a bolt to secure the dipstick into the tube.

Wow this thread just keeps going. I'm happy for you guys. Nice one Pope! That's awesome! Turns out.. I am due for a fluid change here soon. It's definitely looking a little dirty...

Do you think you could just pop the cap covering the pipe that leads into the transmission, take a skinny funnel and fill it up? I'm not really looking for the whole dipstick addition. More or less I am trying to do the drop pan, let it drain, put it back together and refill tranny with same amount of transmission fluid but refill from this access point.
You could possibly do that. As long as you add back what you took out, I shouldn't see a problem. Lexus does that sort of, be that the fill plug on some of their transmissions is actually on the side where the plug for the TCU is. I would still pull the fill plug to check your level when the transmission is up to proper temp. If you do end up doing it that way, best of luck and come back to let us know how it went!
