Need to get it up on car ramps first.Then under car is a full width dirt shield,find the access panel held on with about six large captive snap fasteners. Remove this and sump plug should be revealed.It's usually a large torx head plug,about t45 I think.Replaceable "o"ring on plug too.Then procede as normal. Always change the filter at the same time,use a good semi-synthetic oil.I use Millers 10w-40.
