Oh, another piece of handy advice that I hadn't seen to this point. Since the pan is plastic, let the temps cool to near room temperature or the pan can warp if you take it off while hot. I suppose that's common sense but when looking at the all of the steps related to the job, that little point could get missed. Also, I now understand that the lock for the Mechtronic sleeve is located inside the transmission above the pan. I was reading that as if the lock was outside the transmission. A real "eureka" moment. "Hey, I'm not dumb, I'm just slow..." LOL!

Thanks again,
