YS4500 Lawn Tractor Transmission

How do I remove the vent cap on my lawn tractor's transmission in order to check the oil level? I've attached a picture. Do I unscrew the silver housing? Pull out the black plastic/rubber cap? Do something with the little white plastic thing in the middle? I know transmissions are sensitive, so I don't want to make a wrong move. The model # is 917.288360 Thanks!

The little piece down in the hole should just be a check valve that sits there. I do not show any threads or clips that hold it in. You can take a small screwdriver and gently go around the diameter of the rubber piece to pry it out. In most cases they will pop right out.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
