Entirely glad that you told me this before I bought the filter, opened up my tranny, and searched for it relentlessly. Saved me from looking like a total amateur at the auto shop where I would have bought the filter as well. #nicesave

No problem. Though you would have a hard time opening up the manual box. Automatics have a pan at the bottom that you unbolt, and the filter is behind it. All you need to do on the manual is pull the drain plug at the bottom on the side, let it drain, replace the plug, then remove the fill plug higher up on the side and fill it until fluid starts to come back out through the filler hole. Though I have found it's always a good idea to remove the filler plug first, just in case it's stuck or something. That way you don't end up with a drained gearbox and no way to refill it.
