Shift linkage removal?

Shift linkage removal?

Postby 6ohMax [OP] » Nov 02 2012, 1:09pm

I want to drop my transmission pan today to replace the gasket and filter. There is a shift linkage covering 2 bolts on the pan. How do I remove the linkage enough to access the 2 bolts?

If you are careful you can slightly bend the bracket out of the way then bend it back after you are done. You do not have to bend it far.

Yup, that is exactly what I did.. bend it a little bit. The pan was a SOB to wiggle out. The that little O-ring looking thing for the filter sucked to. Had to get a really tiny flat head to bend it then use needle nose to pull it out. The to put it back in I had to use the handle of one of my screwdrivers to pound the new one back in. Got everything buttoned and torqued back up and filled it with Amsoil ATF. I put 6 quarts back in. Does that sound like enough? My dipstick is kind of weird when it comes to reading.

Thats plenty...

A socket the same size as the seal can also be used to push the seal into place. If its not damaged i leave em :/
