How do you guys change transmission fluid? Is there a drain plug on the housing or does it require to buy an adapter to fit the dipstick and pull it out that way?

Suck it out using whatever pump or siphon you have,manual/electric. using a small tube getting right down too the bottom ,is all i do.

From what I can see in the manual, there is a coverplate on the underside of the tranmission that is held in plate by two screws. You take this off, and out come an o-ring, the filter, and some other stuff. So, you could change it that way, and try to catch all of the fluid as it comes out - of suck it out.. I haven't tried either just yet, but will probably suck it out, then pull the filter to inspect, and hopefully won't get too much more fluid out that way.
