Well, everything is back together and I've driven a few hundred miles. Everything shifts as it should and is nice and solid. One weird issue tho - Sometimes I get a warning that the transmission...

F1mugen. I am sorry to hear the pin broke. I feel very fortunate that I didn't break mine. I've made quite a few short trips and mine seems good. It still holds in 5th longer than I think it...

We went for a test drive over the lunch hour today. I am not sure I got the relearn properly set but it drives differently, nicely. Gears engage promptly, shifts are firm. It seemed to wait a bit...

The valve body is reinstalled. The sleeve actually went in - I managed to get a finger in it to guide the key. The connector screwed on and so far, the car is happy. I still need to torque the pan...

Well before I try to reassemble mine I am going to dig deep and see if I can get a little more slack in the cable. I guess I bent the pins trying to align the connector when plugging it back in. ...

I think if I had done that this job would have been completed much sooner. I figure my bent pins are a result of wrangling the connector in that tight space. Oh well, live and learn.

It's darn frustrating for sure. I have had some experience straightening pins like this. If I wait, take my time, and breathe easy I'll get it back as it should be. I seriously doubt I can find...

F1mugen - I doubt you have bent pins unless you disassembled yours. When the sleeve leaks the fluid eventually gets low enough to make the trans computer panic, at least from what I've read. I...

Thanks TWH. I thought is should feel right and just go on. There is the key in the sleeve that should align stuff. I have no idea how I managed to bend those - I an very aware of bending pins in a...

I just pulled the valve body again. As someone who has built and rebuilt mechanical monstrosities and computers, I am embarrassed to say I found a bent pin on the connector. I still haven't figured...

I would prefer not to start it at this time since there is no fluid in the transmission. I had to drain it to pull the release for the sleeve. I will go out and flip the ignition on and see what I...

The mechatronic sleeve is where I think the issue is. It is new but I am not sure it's properly seated. I did clean the connections with good contact cleaner before reassembling. It all looks nice...

I do not have a nice and small measuring devise that is metric. I have to run errands later so I will bet one. My basic guess is that the gap ZF points out may be more than 3mm.

Before I can even read the codes the iDrive lights up with transmission failure. It also mentions that car may go into gear on it's own. The first time I put it together my scan tool showed good...

Pretty straightforward. I pulled the mechatronic to replace seals and solenoids. Pretty straightforward job. All the parts are original ZF from The CTSC. The last part that is suppose to be...
