The WIS says 2.2L for refill (edit: this is wrong, it's 1.5L for refill). I only got 1.7L.
The drain and fill plugs were a bitch to get out. I didn't even try the level plug: same access depth restriction as the drain plug, with the added bonus of not really having any place for the handle of the tool to go, or your arm to turn the handle for that matter. I drained out 1.7L of black fluid. I guess someone put in dino engine oil (wasn't this factory filled with synthetic gear oil)? I don't remember seeing trans oil this dark before; I thought it was supposed to be much lighter than engine oil because of lower operating temperature. Refilled with 1.9L of GM 19351860, supposedly superseding MTF0063. This stuff was clear. I figure maybe it was low, 1.9L will at least be more than was in there before even if it's not full, and if it was actually full before, an extra 10% doesn't seem excessive. I'll probably drain and refill again in a week. Maybe I'll give the level plug a try then.
Rather than cutting off an allen key, I used an 8mm hex bit with no socket (like a screwdriver bit, but 10mm instead of 1/4" hex drive). Put a 10mm crow's foot wrench on it and about a 15" pipe over that. The pipe was essential, because the wrench was just bending like crazy; put the pipe all the way up as far as it would go. Took a heck of a lot of force, which I really couldn't imagine being able to apply to the fill plug.
