- Drain the transmission fluid from the pan and remove the driveshaft from the transmission and rear axle housing assembly.
- Disconnect any wiring, fluid cooler line, vacuum line, detent / kick down cable, and shift cable connections.
- Unbolt the torque converter from the flexplate, transmission mount from the crossmember, and the crossmember from the vehicle frame.
- Support the bottom of the transmission with a transmission jack or floor jack with a proper size and strength wood block properly placed to avoid damage to the fluid pan or other parts.
- Remove the transmission bellhousing to engine bolts.
- Raise the transmission high enough at the rear to allow removal of crossmember.
- Slowly lower the transmission, making sure there aren't any components that still need disconnected and then remove from the vehicle.
- Installation is in the reverse order of removal as well as properly filling the transmission fluid and detent/kick down cable adjustment per the instructions.
