4r75w advice needed

2004 F150 Supercrew RWD
4r75W

Hi, I need advice on the removal of the 4r75W. I understand that the exhaust needs to be removed but I need some practical advice on how to do it. I've never done this before. What other things are in the way?
And of course i need advice on the removal of the transmission itself.
I already removed the 2 piece drive shaft. Its was really simple but not very obvious how to do that at first.
If you know of removal write ups here or on other forums, please let me know.

The biggest PITA in my opinion are the starter bolts. The starter bolts suck.

Thanks, I would have never guessed.
I'm slow getting started, hopefully I'll make progress soon.

ok here are my "gotchas" so far.
1. The left side up stream O2 sensor was way too hard for me to remove. I left it in place. its not in the way.

2. The right side bolt on the passenger side exhaust flange was very difficult for me. I couldn't get the right combination of swivels and extensions to get to it. I Finally was able to use a ratcheting box end wrench and accessed it from the wheel well. I also sprayed it with penetrating oil and let it soak for about 30 min.

3. Removing the right side exhaust was tricky too. I had to support the transmission and temporarily remove the cross member. this let me lower the exhaust enough to disconnect the right side up stream O2 sensor. Then I could work it out, and put the cross member back.

Starter is next. I see what Darrin meant...

Direct Clutch piston wear 4R75W

Hi everyone.
This is my direct clutch piston. It has wear on the ID. Is this normal wear?

I stopped late last night at this point before installing the pump seal and pump, where I have a ring with a lip and a wavy spring.

I don't recall the order or orientation of the ring and spring. I don't see any of the parts diagrams that show them either.


Please advise...





or did I put my pump together wrong?

The ring is the retainer and it sits in that groove in the transmission with the lip up. Then the wave spring sits inside that so that it can return the intermediate clutch piston in the pump. I prefer to align a low point on the wave spring to the top of the transmission.

Did you make sure the check ball in the intermediate piston is aligned properly so that it sits at the top of the transmission as well?

Thanks for the info.

I have the ball placed back where the original was, which is just to the right of the top pump screw hole when looking at the piston side of the pump.

just went back to align the ball exactly to that top screw hole.

How critical is that alignment?

Not as critical as when you have the newer style return spring that has a divot for it. Just try to get it within the general vicinity.
