You will need to locate the oil drain plug. Take the plug out and let all of the oil drain out then replace the oil drain plug and refill the with the proper amount of oil minus the capacity of the oil filter(normaly 1/4 ro 1/2 qt). You could try to put the plug in after a little has drained out if you dont mind getting messy but i would be sure and buy enough oil to compleatly refill the car just incase you dont get it back in soon enough.
If you overfilled the oil then you can drain some out. There are small hand held pumps that would work fine for the purpose. The exact process would depend on what you overfilled and how much. If the overfill is slight it might not matter on some things and be a big problem in some other. You did not say what you overfilled to give a real exact answer.
Depends on what you mean by too much. If you overfilled it by say 1 pint then more than likely no damage will be done. Simply drain out the excess. If, however you overfilled it by more than that then serious damage can occur. The crankshaft can make contact with the excess oil and whip it into a froth. This froth of oil mixed with air is a poor lubricant and will provide far less protection from wear than 100% oil. Drain out the excess immediately.
If you overfilled your oil on accident do NOT drive the car. Either drain some oil yourself or have the car towed to a mechanic and have them drain some oil for you. If you do drive the car even with the oil overfilled by as little as by quarter quart the oil will foam up and do a LOT of damage including blow seals ruin cylinders ruin valvetrain ruin oil pump ruin pistons ruin rings ruin cylinder head ruin valve guides and more. At that point it would be cheaper to buy a whole new or rebuilt engine then to fix the old one.
Drain the crankcase completely empty, and re-fill with the proper amount of oil. You give no information on how long, or if, the engine was driven in this condition, but if it was for very long there is the possiblity that the oil seals may have been 'blown.' There is no way of telling this until you have drained and re-filled the engine and operated the vehicle for awhile.
More than likely no damage was done but it is possible. If you overfill an engine the excess oil can make contact with the crankshaft. This will cause the oil to be saturated with air. This air mixed with the oil is a poor lubricant and will cause engine wear. Park the vehicle on a level surface, check the oil level (engine cold) and drain out the excess oil immediately.
