Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

On some models there will be some plugs or a cover that can be removed at the bottom of the transmission where it bolts to the engine that can be removed to then access the drain plug ( if equipped).Not all torque converters have a drain plug meaning it cannot be drained manually.It would need to be removed to drain it which involves removing the transmission or a flush machine connected to the vehicle to then run the engine and allow the machine to push out the old fluid while installing new fluid as this will force out any fluid from the torque converter at the same time adding new fluid into it.

There is no set procedure in the manual on this year and model here except for a transmission flush with a flush machine when the transmission is still installed in the vehicle.
