Default How to fill transmission fluid ?

My 08 Escape Hybrid lost some transmission fluid during a cv axle replacement. How to add fill transmission fluid and check the level?
Updates: found the filling port. Had to buy a 10mm hex to take the plug off.

Were you able to change the fluid yet? I found this thread: https://www.greenhybrid.com/forums/f...u-fluid-14560/

Pull the fill plug and fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole (Eg "Fill to spill" as sometimes spoken - car should be on a level surface).
To get to the plug you need to remove the plastic shield/fairing (must remove a bunch of small bolts). Plug is on the outboard side/drivers side of the transmission. If you choose to drain and refill the drain plug is on the bottom after side of the ECVT (transmission). I use AmsOil full synthetic ATF.
