Hello,

You will need to raise the car up safely.

Here is how the manual give you instructions (below)

CHECKING FLUID LEVEL
Start the engine and allow the engine to idle for approximately 5 minutes, or , if possible, drive the vehicle for a few miles to warm the transaxle fluid. Check the fluid level when the transaxle is over 86 F (30 C).
Press the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the park position.
Raise and suitably support the vehicle.
Place a fluid container below the fluid level plug.
WARNING:Do not remove the fluid level plug if the transaxle fluid is hot. This may cause injury if the fluid drains from the plug hole.

Remove the fluid level plug using the plug remover/installer. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the plug hole when the plug is removed.
Check the oil fluid level. If fluid does not drain through the plug hole after adding a total of 4 liters, the transaxle was either underfilled or it is leaking fluid. Inspect the transaxle for fluid leaks. Fix any leaks before setting the transaxle fluid level. See Fig. 5 .
Install the fluid level plug using the plug remover/installer. Tighten the plug to the specifications.
When the fluid level checking procedure is completed, wipe any fluid from the transaxle case with a rag or shop towel. Also, check that the fluid fill cap and the vent tube are properly installed.
