Unfortunately, your model year does not have access to the torqure converter. You can drain from the transmission pan, but will only get about 4 qts out. Some have gone with getting the transmission fluid flushed out by a shop. Another method is DIY flushing by using the cooler lines, but that is spendy since it uses a lot of quarts of $$ MB fluid to do the job.

I personally just drain what I can from the pan every 10-15k miles and call it good.

Check out this thread, it has a lot of info on changing tranny fluid in our cars -

92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.
