Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 1996 Chevy Cavalier?

If it is a manual, and like a 1997 cavalier, it will be located below the brake fluid reservoir, buried under hoses and is marked "trans". I was able to get to it in a 1997 from above, but scraped the heck out of my arm. Probably best to get at it from below, but so far I have only tried once, so don't know if from below is easier!
