I know this is more expensive, but it might be easier to just have the dealer do it, the dealer I go for auto trans fluid replacement is cheaper than say jiffy lube, etc.

That's for manual tranny only.....and if anyone is gonna change the manual tranny fluid, make sure you can undo the filler bolt before you drain it, or you'll be screwed with the oil out of the tranny and can't fill it back up.

For auto tranny, there's a drain bolt on the pan, at the bottom of the tranny. To get to the filter, you'll need to take the pan off as well. To refill it, you'd pour the oil down the dip stick tube. You could also stick a tube down the dip stick tube and suck the oil out too. But either way, you wouldn't get all the oil out. To do a really good flush n refill, a shop would use a machine to do that.

Take a look at the current issue of Popular Mechanics; there's a good how-to article on changing auto tranny fluid that I read it at someone's house. Probably the June issue.
