Quite simply, if there is a drain plug, then loosen it and wait till all the fluid has come out.If there is not a drain plug, than you have to loosen all the pan bolts in a rotational motion and leave the very front ones in as you remove the rest the fluid will start dripping around the rear of the pan. Use a large pan to collect the fluid, an old refridgerator bottom drawer works quite well. Now the reason for leaving the front bolts in but loose is all the fluid will come out to the rear instead of flowing down your arms to the elbow which I find quite uncomfortable. Once the fluid slows down remove the remaing bolts and keep track of the direction of the pan as it comes off. Pour the rest of the fluid from the tranny pan into your collector. Look at the small magnet stuck to the bottom of the pan, there will be a small amount of metal filings, this is normal. Clean the pan and the magnet. Some filters are screwed in and others pop off of a rubber grommet. You'll know what you've got when you see it. Again keep an eye on the position of the filter as you remove it. Put the new filter in, place the gasket on the pan and keep it in place with four or six bolts until you get it started back in place.Then just tighten them in a military rotation(ask a friend if you don't know what this means. I can't type any longer. Fill iyt with the specified amount of fluid from your specs in the owners manual. Good luck,Dana

You need to remove the transmission pan to both drain the fluid and replace the filter...the filter kit should also come with a replacement gasket...you will need to check the operators manual or call the dealer to see how much trans fluid you will need to replace
