Default Wheres my Transmission Drain Plug?

I'm gonna drain my ATF in the next few days and was just wondering where the drain plug is located? I have a 2001 Civic EX. Is it easy to find like the oil pan plug?

it's on the passenger side, towards the front bottom of the transmission housing.

oh - and it has a square hole. lol. Makes it real easy to find. Just put your wrench's tip in. Works fine.

Is one bottle of Honda Genuine ATF enough for a drain and refill?
