simple drop the pan be careful as it has no drain plug for the fluid.start removing bolts in front -rear first then remove bolts on sides of pahloosen other 4or5 bolts fulid will be running out,have something big enought to catch fluid thenremove rest of the bolts easley tip pan to drain fluid remove.filter just pulls down,may have to wiggle it out,filter also has fluid in it.clean pan tire cleaner is good,renove old gasket.use YELLOWweather strip glue get at autozone red box -red tube,put aroung pan onlt place gasket on panlet stand 5 minutes or soinstall filter the way it came out will be o-ring in box-plastic.if oid one did not come off with oid filter is ok leave in push filter up as far as you can tap with fist to lock into oring,put pan back on do not over tighten bolts,dont want to squish out new gasket ,youwill know when thght5 qrts of dextron lll-3fluid ,your done.
