WARNING:Use extreme care when draining transmission fluid as the fluid is VERY hot.

NOTE:Transmission fluid should be drained with transmission at normal operating temperature.

Raise and support vehicle. Apply parking brake and position chocks under front and rear wheels. Remove underbelly panel. See UNDERBELLY PANEL under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION.
Position suitable container under transmission. Clean area around drain plug. See Fig. 4 .
