Your transaxles are made by Hydro-Gear. There is a an oil fill port at the top of your transaxle. You will need an Allen Wrench, or an Allen Bit to remove the plug that screws into your oil fill port. It loosen counterclockwise.

Please take a look at the image I have attached for you. It shows the location of the plug.

I will also attach a link to a Free Hydro-Gear Service for you. It will explain the proper procedures for changing your oil, and also shows the location of your fill port, as well as, the correct type of replacement oil, and the correct amount of oil..

After your manual finishes downloading, scroll to Page 11 (Fluid Change Procedures). Also take a look at Page 12. It explains the Purging Procedures. After you re-fill your transaxles with oil, you will need to purge them, in order to remove the trapped air from them.
