Drop oil pan, no need to pull transmission out.

Pull oil pan, pull bearing brace. Pull six bearing cap. Half of the seal slides up into a hole above the cap, the other half is settled into the cap . Dont tear the top half when putting it in, very easy to do.

You Tube It; there are several good videos on the subject that include some tricks such as when you get started throw your new seal in a cup of oil and let it soak til you are ready to use. It will absorb oil and provide for a better seal upon start up. Not a bad job, just takes a while. Good Luck and be patient and it will work out.

85 ft lbs on cap and 35 ft lbs on brace sticks in my head but im not positive without looking it. back up. As far as bolt pattern, just start in the middle and sig zag back and forth towards the ends-its normal practice.
