Heres an article outlining how to locate and change the filter. Beware, you do have to drop the tranny to change the filter. I would recommend taking it to a reputable mechanic if your repair skills are limited. The linkages are very touchy on the 2002-2005 model years. Best of luck! http://www.fixya.com/cars/t16554695- replace_transmission_filter_02_ford

There is no serviceable trans filter on the CD4E trans unless you are rebuilding it. Just do a drain and fill.
