Yup, right under the alternator with a black plastic cap. Kind of a pain to even reach down to get the cover off. You will likely need a long flexible funnel to fill it, unless you want to try and pour it in from the top.

He has a 97 SSEi, a LOT more room in back when compared to your Wbody. But a long funnel will help. I was able to get a small bottle down there and pour it in.

Ah nice, I figured it was fairly similar, didn't know he has a lot more room - that helps. Trying to get to mine is kind of a challenge haha.

I have a habit of checking power steering fluid when removing the alternator bracket. It'* the perfect time, easy to access.
