The dealer pointed out the plug location to me. It is about 4" from the front of the transmission and about 1" from the outer (driver's side) edge. Easily accessible without jacking the car up. It takes an 11mm socket. It came off easily, not much torque required. A little over 5 quarts of fluid drained out so I would suggest having 6 quarts on hand before starting the procedure.
