08 Expedition trans fluid dipstick...where?????

just bought an 08 Expedition that was wrecked in the front end. The trans cooler was busted in the collision and I now need to top off the trans fluid, but I cannot find the dipstick tube to check the level or fill it.
I did not get an owners manual with the truck when I bought it. Anybody know how to top off the tranny fluid?????

No Dipstick. Manual says only dealer allowed to check. It takes 11 quarts. I have not been under the car yet to look but I imagine there is a plug on the tranny to open and look. But no info in the manual about how high the level should be or anything else for tht matter. Sorry

Thanks Bopper for the info. That is what I have been reading and finding too. Don't you just love how manufacturers try to fool you into thinking their dealer is so much more "Qualified" than everyone else? Well the truck didn't fall out of the sky from heaven like it was a gift from god and god whispered in the Ford dealers ear on how to check and fill the tranny fluid! We'll just see about me taking it to the dealer for this. Have you ever looked at some of the mechanics at the dealers? I take this as a challenge to see if I can do it myself. I can guarantee I will not pay some snot snosed chump at the dealer $80.00 an hour to check my transmission fluid like it is rocket science or something. I will figure it out on my own and I'm sure I will do it with the same or better quality the dealer will do!!!! Sorry for the rant, but these manuals that say "contact your dealer" instead of just answering my damn question gets under my skin!!
