Tranny fluid check

i have been reading up on some of the threads about checking/changing the tranny fluid and i want to check mine because i had that little infamous ! in the gear pop up a couple days ago. im thinking that its just a little low because i was doing some radiator work a couple months back and when i took off the tranny fluid radi. some came out. SO jumped on my 1993 auto 325i to check it out, I CANT GET THE DAMN BOLT OFF TO CHECK THE LEVEL!! it wont move AT ALL!!! i totally feel like im doing something wrong because it shouldnt be this hard??? if anyone could help id love it...
thanks
