Working at the left side of the transmission, remove the 24mm fill plug (yellow arrow).

Working at the left side of the transmission, remove the 24mm fill plug (yellow arrow). The fill plug can be tight. Use a ratchet with a long handle or a breaker bar if you cannot get it loose with a wrench. Next you will remove the drain plug.

Place a drain pan under the transmission and loosen the 24mm fluid drain plug (green arrow).

Using a fluid pump, fill the transmission until fluid flows out of the fill plug hole (inset).

Comments and Suggestions:
none Comments: what is the procedure on how to change the filter on a automatic transmission, I did not think it can be changed because I do not see an oil pan, just the drain plug. volvo v70 2002 thank you.

  Followup from the Pelican Staff:

Volvo wants the fluid drained, then the return hose removed and filled and drained using containers. It's quite the procedure.

We don't currently have that tech article. If we get a chance to perform the procedure, we will be sure to document it.

I would grab a repair manual. It will have the procedure, special tools and torque specs.
