You need to remove the plastic cowling piece on the passenger side of the engine compartment (it has the clip to hold the hood brace attached to it). If you pop up the little plastic clips that hold it down (carefully with a flat screwdriver) the plastic piece will lift out. The anti-freeze reservoir is underneath it with the fill port. The plastic piece covers the cap for the fill port and you can't see it until you take the cowling piece out.

First of all, be certain that the leak is in fact from that seal. many leaks travel to that area.
To change the seal is fairly involved, you need to pull the trans and flywheel. There are some specialzed tools involved. Do you have manual or automatic? Manual requires clutch plate alignment on re assembly, by the way , if manual, be sure to change the release bearing and pilot bearing at minimum. Commonly it would make sense to change the clutch during this process....you're already all the way in there..

If you are replacing the oil and the oil filter it will take 6.4 quarts to fill to proper level.
Good for you to do your own servicing. :)
