Question Help-how to change oil on 2012 300 V6

Tried to change my oil this weekend on my 2012 300 V6 but couldn't find the drain plug!

Do you have to remove the shrouds to get to it? I may just have to get an oil extractor and suck it from the dipstick tube.

Aargghh!

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

OK, thanks! I thought that's what I had to do but wanted to check before removing the shroud. Will update with post with result.

OBTW, removing the oil filter from the top of the engine was piece of cake for any backyard DYI mechanic.

Get an oil suction pump for about $40 and everything can be done from the top. No need to get underneath to remove the shroud. Best $40 I ever spent.
