On Gibbons method, you have to remove the Air Filter Housing to get access to the Filler Plug hole (Torx 55) that is on top of the transmission housing........ Then you have to lower a funnel into that filler hole to filled new ATF fluid.

My method avoid all of these.............. I use the return pipe/hose that is connected on the top part on the radiator to filled new ATF fluid
