Question trans fill plug/ location/specific? / 2010 lexus es350

I"m changing the trans fluid, by way of using the trans pump to push old fluid out of a disconnected cooler line.
My Question - 'Where' (specifically-if you can) is the trans fluid fill plug ?

I have found some answers on Google- state that it is under the left ft wheel splash shield ?

But where ?? / what does it look like ?

thanks
Mike

Thumbs up

I found my answer,
the Fill Plug is behind the lower section of the front half of the inner fender/splash shield, remove 2 bolts & the plastic easily pulls down.
the Lexus uses "WS" type fluid, Valvoline # 324.
you cant just drain the fluid, I disconnected a cooler line at the radiator, & use the trans pump, with the engine running, yo pump out 3 quarts at a time / 9 total, till the fluid color cleared up.
to check the fluid level after all is said & done,
with the trans at 115 deg, (with an infrared temp gun), & engine running, veh-level, remove the overflow tube plug in the bottom of the pan, & the fluid sould sorta trickle out, not Flow out.
