You do not need to replace the filter it is more like a screen. It is inside the transmission case and is non serviceable.

The funny thing is though I see in the part explosion that there is a pan on the CVT units.

Here is guide to help get the transmission serviced.

If you're talking about the transmission filter, that is inside of the transmission and the transmission would need to be torn apart in order to replace it. These filters typically aren't considered maintenance items due to this fact. If you do still choose to replace it, you might as well purchase an overhaul kit and rebuild the tranny.

AutoZone will sell you one because they are replaceable but like I said, it's located inside of the transmission. The transmission is going to have to be removed from the vehicle and taken apart.
