1996 Jaguar XJ6: my transmission fluid for a while now..plug.

Customer Question
I have a 1996 Jaguar...
I have a 1996 Jaguar XJ6. I have been wanting to change my transmission fluid for a while now. However, in looking under the car at the transmission I did not notice a drain plug. At least not where you would normally see one. I have tried searching online but I cannot find instructions on how to do this?
