It is located on the left side on the engine (facing it) and is bolted down by 10mm bolt. To measure the fluid level, re-insert the dipstick with mounting bracket facing away from its mounting position and push it in further down.
Look up all the details here:

A-Ha! I was looking for that too. My last suv, an 02 ford explorer did not have a tranny dipstick! They have a drain plug and fill plug like a differential, and ford wants you to take it to the dealer for service.
