Should be on the backside of the transmission right by where the convertor housing bolts up to the main half of the transmission.

When you get under the car, it will be vary easy to spot. It's on the passenger side bottom of the differential housing (the part of the transmisison where the axle shafts go in). 15mm wrench.

And on my '95SL2, it's on the driver's side,(((>just below and back, where the transmission filter sits, and is facing towards the passenger side<))).
As you don't have a fumoto valve setup, you'll have to lift the right front of the car, to get under.

Remember, you'll have a considerable initial flow when the bolt is removed. I'd suggest that you just loosen the plug,
and let it drain out, with the plug not removed. It's be slow, but you'll not end up with fluid all over the place.

It should look something like the pic below (although this is from a manual transaxle, not an auto)...

The instructions in the "How to" library are much more specific.
The instructions at the Autozone link have handy reference photos.

If you are only changing the filter, you really don't care about the drain plug, and even if you did, you don't need to CHANGE it. Maybe I am taking you too literally.
