Where is the CVT transmission fluid dipstick?

Im new to the whole Nissan and CVT idea. I believe my CVT fluid is low. I went to check today and I can't find it. Some website said it was in the back but didn't find anything. I thought I found it in the front, but it was capped off, i guess thats something to do with A/C. BTW Its a 08 2.5s

If possible can someone grab a picture from Google and draw a circle where it is.

Thanks.

On my 2011 it is just to the right of the motor oil dipstick, in the front. As I recall it does not have a loop like other dipsticks, looks like a cap, don't quite remember but it has a latch or something.

Okay I found this. It has a black cap on it. But exactly how do I check if its at the right level?

The owners manual says to have the dealer check the level, so maybe the cap is not removable .

There a small latch, you'll see it. Take a small flat head, push it in while pulling up and the dipstick will come out.
