changing oil in K46 transaxle...

I'm trying to change the oil in my K46HD transaxle, but I'm having trouble locating the fill hole.

I've looked at the diagrams on the Tuff Torq website, and there are two possibilities: One is called a "vent", which has a rubber plug with a hole and a black cap. The other has a metal cap, and the diagrams show a magnet and magnet-holder underneath.

Which one is the correct one to open in order to drain/replace the oil?

Does it just pry off?

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the info. Been wanting to do mine w/synth. since both TT and JD recommend it. However, I have to wait until the warranty is up or I could have problems with JD if the tranny goes bad...:duh::banghead3 :00000061:

(what tractor do you have the K46 on and did you remove it or pump it out?)
