Question Issues changing 525i transmission fluid

Hey, I'm new to this forum / website.

I have a 1993 525i, which recently needed it's radiator replaced, which meant we drained some of the transmission fluid. So, to replace it, I found the valves--- the drain and the intake, but the intake valve is so rediculously hard to access, I rigged up some tubbing and tried to drain it in, with no luck... I need a pump of some kind, I guess, but do you have any suggestions?

Also, a bit of the tubing has fallen inside through the intake valve... any suggestions on a way to get it out?
