there is no "servicable filter" on your tranny, nor is there a standard pan on the botXXXXX XXXXXke you'd remove on 90% of the cars out there.It is what we call in the business a "drain and refill".Many transmissions are like this now a days.There is a big drain plug in the very bottom of tranny.The bolts head will be vertical.I usually use a big adjustable wrench to get it off.Just let the fluid out.And pour some new stuff in.You'll need 4 quarts of Dexron III.I hope this helps and good luck!
