is it manual tranny? if so u do so under the car by removing the fill up plug which is located on the side of the tranny on driver side of the car if i remember. The plug under the tranny is to drain it.
If u drain it, when u fill it back up, u do so until oil slightly spills out by way of that side plug.

You will have a bit of old oil left in the system if you just drain it and change the oil filter. My guess it is a 5qrt system so 10% would account for 1/2 qrt. May not seem like a lot but your crankshaft, valve train and pan can hold residual oil that may account for your 10%, also sludge and other deposits too. Now the way you actually change oil, at a dealership or higher end service stations, they use a cycling system to send in fresh oil through the car and pump out the old. Once the color changes or my guess the computer on the device says the oil is completely clean then all the residue is gone and everything is good and the light will go off. This is wonderful since it removes sludge and all sorts of gunk out of the engine.
