Well I'm not very experienced at this but according to the manual I read, if you have an automatic transmission you don't need to change the transmission filter because you would have to take appart the entire transmission.

All you need to do is drain the Transmission Fluid into a drain pan like you would when chaning your oil. The transmission fluid drain plug is found under the driver side of the engine and is a female, square bolt you will need to remove.

Once the fluid has drained, you will need to put the plug back in place and firmly put the bolt/plug back in place. (use about 20 lbs of pressure on it)

Then you can add the new transmission fluid throgh the filler tube. You will need a long thin spouted funnel to be able to get the fluid to the right location. I am not sure but I think you can add the fluid right where the dip stick is located.

Your owners manual will specify what type of fluid to buy and what your transaxle capacity for fluid is in the back index section of the Owner's Guide.
