Phil is correct that the sticker will indicate the tranny/rear diff that 
was originally installed on the car.  My experience is that the sticker 
may not match the tranny that is actually installed in the car ...

Bentley tells you exactly where the stamping on the tranny housing is ...
my recollection is that it is on the front of the bellhousing above the 
cast window that allows the timing mark to be viewed on the flywheel.  
I usually lean over the left front quarter panel near the hood hinge to 
view the mark ...
