looks like the pan itself is the plug on this one, about 14 ten m m bolts, loosen slowly and pry loose easy, as hot fluid will splash out

Almost all automatics require removal of the pan to drain the fluid. Dumb but that is the way it is.

With no dipsticks it certainly make a lot of work for the transmission shops
