There are drain and fill plug bolts just as on the differentials. I'll try to dig up a diagram.
It's an easy job once you locate the drain and fill points.

I'm about to do mine in my 05 QX. I did it a few years ago in my 05 Titan and it was easy.

loosen the fill plug first so you don't drain it all then figure out that you can't get the fill plug out.

I read you will need a little over 2 quarts of ATF fluid compatible with Matic D or Dex III.

ran into some issue. removed the fill plug, and about a quart of ATF came out.....something is not quite right.
lot more came out when drain plug was removed....

it could be because front of my was was jacked up ?

I measure just a little under 3 quart came out. but only 2.5 quart went back in.

Edit: had the car level and checked it again. Same thing. So it only took 2.5 quart
