Hello, it depends on whether you have a 3 speed or 4 speed transaxle. The picture is for a 3 speed.

The 4 speed has a site level screw, located close to where the half shaft enters the transaxle.

Under the vehicle, for the site level screw, the halfshaft is the axle that drives the front wheels, one on each side. If you need to add fluid, at the vent cap.
