Wink C70 automatic 2011 gearbox oil check and change

Hi everyone! Finally got the car i been waiting for a long time my c70 2011 auto. It drives very well apart from little jerk whenever i change from neutral to drive or from neutral to reverse. I never change direct from drive to reverse for obvious reasons. I also let gear engage before moving off. My questions are
1: Could this be due to less oil or dirty oil in gearbox?
2: Where is gearbox dipstick on this 2011 model? (2003 model already covered in other threads)
3: Does this gearbox have an oil drain, if so where. ( Pictures would be much appreciated.

The car has good pull once driving, no power loss issue and has only covered 45000 miles will regular service.

New user of the forum and first post so if i missed something or made a mistake in posting let me know. Many thanks

not sure if you solved this, but yes, there's a drain plug for the transmission fluid. as easy to drain & fill (via transmission dipstick tube) as a oil change. should see small yellow handle towards the front near the engine fan

a lull in shifting can also be from a worn engine-transmission mount. mine was worn by 35k miles. replaced with a ford e-focus mount which has much firmer rubber and shifting is much more crisp/smooth.
