06 G6 Transmission Fluid Check Plug Location?

Where is the transmission fluid check plug located?
I just want to check the level of the transmission fluid.

(2006 G6 3500/V6 Automatic)

Does anyone have a picture or drawing of this check plug?

Thanks

from what I've researched, there is no dipstick to check this. You have to take it to a dealer and have them check it

Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid temperature has reached the value specified. Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range. Caution the engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening.
Remove the transmission plug.
Important
Transmission fluid (At least 104F) 5-10 minutes at idle will give correct temp.
Does the fluid have a burnt odor or a dark brown color?Check the fluid level. The fluid level should be even with the bottom of the threaded plug hole.Is the fluid level low?
Add DEXRON VI or III if that what it came with from factory, automatic transmission fluid in increments of 0.5L until the fluid drains from the plug hole.
Install plug before stopping engine or fluid will spill out of plug hole.
Pan drop and filter change 7.5 qts
Check plug is just to the right of the passenger side axle housing , 11 mm plug, can't miss it, only one there.
Hoist is optional, just needs to be level and plug accessible.

Certain G6 models have the dipstick, while others do not.
Unfortunately the one we own doesn't have the dipstick.

Does anyone have a picture of the check plug?



Thanks slls,
I'll look for the check plug where you mentioned

Can the check plug be easily viewed without lifting the car into the air?
I'm looking but don't have a hoist.

No. I run the front up on ramps, then jack the rear end until the sill is level. I also put jack stands on the rear.
