=========
Thought I read elsewhere that some of the newer Toyotas use "lifetime"
fluid and even that the drain plug has been removed, so you'd have to
suck out and replace the fluid through the fill hole only.
Also thought I'd read that owners of other makes never had a
transmission drain plug, having to remove the pan to drain
transmission fluid. So that may be another option.
Check the condition of the fluid on the dipstick and if you opt to
change it, (sometime "lifetime" for Toyota service recommendations can
be 120,000 miles - fuel filter, for example, although many have gone
longer) - - if you do change the fluid be sure to replace only with
Toyota designated (most likely synthetic) exact replacement fluid.
============
Oops! Misread your question - though the information may shed some
light on why no instructions for checking. Generally the procedure is
always the same: bring the transmission up to full operating
temperature, driving at least ten miles, then with engine idling,
shift from Park into each gear position then back to Park, and then
check the fluid level with the dipstick. If your model doesn't have
the dipstick, then I think I saw somewhere that you check the level by
the fill hole on the side, like a standard transmission, but someone
with more specific knowledge of your year should verify.
