changing transmission fluid

My girlfriend wants me to change the transmission fluid on her car. She's got a 2001 gxe. I'm not familiar with nissans at all. There's no tricks correct? I won't need to put the new fluid in with a pump? General location of bolt to drain? Thanks in advance for any help.

you'll see the drain and fill pretty easily. Drain requires a 14mm hex...I suggest getting the one that fits in a socket wrench, that thing will be TIGHT. Fill requires a 10mm hex head. Drain is on the side facing the wheel. fill is on the front facing the bumper. (of the tranny of course)

whatever you do, DO NOT use anything rated GL5...it will eat away the synchros.
