CVT Transmission fluid change

I have a Nissan versa 2009 1.8L SL with CVT transmission.
I want to change the transmission fluid but am not sure if it's something i can do at home.

What is the name of the fluid that I need?
Does my Versa have a drain plug at the bottom?

Has anybody done in it at home and can share their experience?

Is this the right fluid? https://www.amazon.com/Nissan-999MP-.../dp/B005ETHNV6

Thanks!

I am not saying that you can't do the job, but do yourself a favor and let the dealer change it out. Take a look at the link provided and get an idea of how it is done:

Looked up service manual and apparently no drain plug as the fluid switch is done by disconnecting a trans cooler line and danger can lie there if one does not know what they are doing. The fluid appears to be NS-2 type.
