View Full Version : Leak at the Transmission Downshift Lever

10-17-2015, 12:46 PM
I have a leak at the seal where the Downshift Lever meets the Transmission. Before I start taking that apart, are there any secrets? Does something pop out if I remove the bolt holding that in? Is there a seal that needs replacing? I couldn't find anything specific in the manual about removing/replacing....

You have to drop the pan and remove the valve body to get access to the nut that holds the shaft in the transmission. You also have to have room between the transmission and frame to pull the shaft out. Sometimes you have to drop the transmission slightly to get it out. There are two seals that need replacing.
