Disassembly: Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Solenoid

Here is where you have to be really careful. Look and study the valve body assembly so you have a picture of it in your mind. Be careful of the small check balls and springs that they don't pop out and get lost. I found that sometimes sketching a "map" is very helpful when you are in unknown territory.

  1. Remove the valve body cover. Refer to "Valve Body Cover" and "Transaxle Support Assembly".
  2. Remove the wiring harness from the case electrical connector and leads from the pressure switch.
  3. Remove the torque converter clutch bolt (334) to auxiliary valve body.
  4. Remove the 3rd clutch pressure switch (335).
  5. Remove the second clutch switch (338), if applicable.
