Transmission fluid dipstick location?

Where would the dipstick to check the condition of the transmission fluid be located? I used to have a Camry and it was easy to find but I can't find this in the iA yet. Does it not have one?

It has no transmission dipstick. The Scion Ia has a sealed transmission. The Scion Scheduled Maintenance Owner's Manual only shows that the transmission fluid should be inspected at 30,000 mile intervals. How that's done is a question that only the dealership should answer.

Ia doesn't have a trans fluid dipstick since it's a sealed transmission... But it must have a fill bolt.. which means it has a drain bolt..

If you know where these are... please leave a post..

Pics are helpful too.

Thanks
