BMW e46 a way to fill transmission oil if fill plug stuck.

I found a dodgy but emergency way to fill the transmission oil if fill plug stuck and you dropped the oil already, all you need is clear white silicone the one in the tooth paste tube, forgot the name if it ,will post it later on, in the drain plug out hose in it and put the silicone around the hose holding it in the drain plug hole, let it settle for a few hours , come back and pump the transmission oil through the drain hole, check if it doesn't leak like a rainfall ,and after you pump the amount you need in it quickly rip it off and put drain plug in quickly, I had to this cause had no time to run around trying to extract the fill plug out, as it was a hex and had been stripped cause its freaking old, so far all is good with the transmission I got a BMW e46 328i 1998, and thought the bolt above was the full plug but wasn't ,it turns out it's the big hex plug on the opposite side of the drain plug, was a nightmare for me so had to do the Macgyver styles, I will post picks of my caveman tools, feel free to interrogate me lol if you want to do this as an emergency fix. Thanks .
