You don't mention tranny make...mine is a ZF... if same see below
I was able to cut a shallow plastic container and drain small batches thru the plug and replaced the plug in between.
You can get most of it thru the filter housing with a pump after removing the cap & filter then drain the any remaining via the plug.
The plug thread is 1\2" NPT and I plan to install a ball valve and hose barb at next change as I have a spare port on my oil change pump and I can use it for tranny as a temp or permanent hook up....TBD
If ZF the filter is a cleanable metal screen... I got a new one so I could change quickly and clean later and have a spare. It's fairly coarse screen and was a quick clean w solvent.
Parts & service manuals should be in the library section of TF.
I'm on the tablet and don't have laptop hooked up... I believe you need to access TF via PC for the library.
