Default ATF filler neck?

I've got a 96 Legacy Outback, and I'm getting ready to flush out the old ATF and replace it. I dont see anywhere that I can fill it up from. Do I need to fill it through the transmissions dipstick? Am I missing something? Do I need to get it from below? Let me know ASAP please. Thanks.

Filling it through the dipstick is the way to go. Get a nice skinny funnel and get it snug in the opening. It sounds like a pain, but it isn't that bad.

Yeah, it's usually through the dipstick. Manuals are the same way. Just get a filler with a long narrow end.

I have found that you can use an old gear oil bottle as a funnel. It comes with a pour spout that you cut to size to fit the dipstick neck. The bottle is long and narrow so it fits in the space to reach the dipstick neck. Just cut off the bottom to make a funnel. Don't pour in the ATF too fast because the dipstick tube is pretty narrow.
