Is there a how-to for this anywhere? Can't really search for it...

Not that I can recall seeing. It would be a heck of a long how-to since it's so involved. Most people that have the tools and know how to get into something that in depth already know how to do it and/or have a manual, so no one's ever bothered to make a how-to.

I have a Haynes manual. It has been invaluable in my tranny swap and r and r the last 2 times. But you will learn way more than any manual will teach you during the repair. Good luck.

k that's what i figured i just wanted to see if there was something so if i get lost at some point i have another source to look at but i guess i'll manage. just one thing, how long will this take if ive never done something like this before?? I'll have a manual, someone helping me with fairly good mechanical knowledge, and air tools.

I used to do it in less than a day. I never really timed myself though and I was careful so I wasn't rushing or anything.

I'm getting better at this. Usually 1 day out, 1 day to get it back in. Plus whatever other work needs done.

your best bet is to find a friend that knows what they are doing and just learn by watching and helping them because thats a huge job to change a tranny...

i've done it twice now.... pm me if ya need any advice/help.... and if you have a 3.4/auto plan on dropping the front subframe, it makes it a lot easier... as opposed to my first time where i got the tranny unbolted and realized it wouldn't clear the subframe... the second time went much faster with the subframe out and also gave a lot more room to do the job
