Auto Transmission Drain Plug

My brother in law and I were looking at his 2002 Accord (4cyl, auto) this past weekend and we didn't have a lot of luck finding the drain plug for it. I was trying to compare it to what I remembered my wife's '04 looking like (but it wasn't with us). Does anyone have one of those repair manual drawings or a photo of where to find the drain plug?
Also wondering if there's one of those little inline filters on it, like the '04 has.

Thanks.

Should be on the bottom of the transmission. Look for a female opening where a ratchet would fit into.

What he said, it is on the bottom of the transmission and you will be able to fit the square end of a ratchet in there. There is no replaceable filter on the tranny.

there is no infine filter for our generation but you should add one. i highly recommend adding a magnefine filter on the return line. the ebay link i posted is about the cheapest i can find. I would drain out the old fluid then add the inline filter before you fill new fluid.

As others have said the transmission drain plug is the one with the square socket fitting. They are often installed very tight so you might need some additional leverage to break it loose. It has a magnet on the inside of the plug which will need to be cleaned off. Black greasy looking stuff is normal, metallic chips and pieces are not.

If you want to add an ATF filter, here is a picture of the Magnefine I installed in the existing return hose on my 2000. Your 2002 should be piped exactly the same. Its quite easy to do.

Thanks a lot, everyone. I'll forward this to him. I forgot that the bolt would be for a ratchet. Thanks.

There is an in-line filter if Honda replaced the transmission. Its a black bump, about the size of a fuel filter...
The drain plug is center-left (passengers-side)...
