Nah....not through the filler or you will be there next Xmas !
Under car....undo and remove fill plug up the passengers side of the tranny..... then remove drain plug from under the transmision.
CATCH OIL of course but not in your hands :-)

Clean drain plug of new CRUSH WASHER ! ! !

Get a cheapo pump....I got mine on and refill till it trickles out filler hole.
Refit funny square headed bolt again.
Job done.

NOTE: Easier if oil is warm and do not...repeat DO NOT do it under the car on the car jack ! !
Axle stands are the order of the day OR a pit...or a ramp.
Better if the vehicle canm be kept level but NOT critical.
