There isn't one. It's lifetime-lubed, no fluid checking or changing.

Some cars have the dipstick bolted in. That is, you won't see a ring to grab in the engine bay. When you remove the bolt, the 'dipstick' will be beneath it.

New trannies don't ordinarily require fluid checks for up to 100k and many makes don't want the owner messing around with the fluid.

Honestly, you needn't worry unless you see a leak.
