Thanks BimmerFan52.

I took the pan off and had the sleeve ready, but I can't find where does the sleeve goes? With pan off, I can see under the transmission there is absolutely no place where the sleeve is visible. Is it hiding under "sleeve locking mechanism" or do I need to pull the valve body to reach the sleeve? What are the symptoms of leaking sleeve anyway?

Also, my pan was changed about 12,000K's during the transmission oil change. I do have a new pan, but the old one seems to be okay. Do you think I should change the pan, or just the two oil drains as recommended earlier in this post? I have the pan off at the moment as I am trying to figure out the sleeve and have to get 12 new bolts (which I am going to do a washer + M6 high tensile bolt combination).

Would appreciate if anyone can share there thoughts on the sleeve and pan.
