Mine had a bolt that was just about stripped so I just started filling it from the top where the shifter is. I can't remember the exact procedure for talking it apart but once you get your boot off around the stick, it's pretty easy to figure out. A tranny shop I went to one time said that he always did it this way because he could get a little more fluid in by bypassing the regular fill hole.

Get a socket and pound it on. Undo. If that doesn't work, arc weld a socket onto the mungled plug. Undo, replace....
