How do you remove the automatic transmission pan on 2.3 Fusion?
How can I take of the transmission pan? Any hints? There are lots of screws on the driver's side right above the frame brace that look impossible to get to. I want to change my transmission filter. I'm about to give up and just drain and replace the fluid and call it a day. My car has 57,000 miles on it and has never had a transmission service.
I noticed gushed RTV silicone on the transmission pan.
