722.6 transmission filter

The filter i jist installed didn't snap in and i am worried about it. Anyone know which way the fluid runs through the filter? If it runs from the bottom through the top, it would tend not to force the filter off. But if it runs that way, if the filter did come off, it would be dangerous if the fluid was low.

I remember reading that those don't just snap in. Somehow you need to "wedge" it in when putting the drain pan back on. The description sounded a bit tricky to me. I don't know about the fluid path.

If the old rubber washer is still up in the housing, this might cause this sensation.
With a little ATF on the new one, a little wiggling and pushing is needed to seat it.
The fluid is sucked up from the bottom of the pan.

Great advice.


Also it does clip in. View circled area. This snaps into the valve body in the back.

All you will see is a small slit machined into the body. To help you in finding the slit, put main pick-up tube into general mounting area.

The one i bought--a mann "made in china" didn't have the clip, just a tab in the same location. The one that came out of the car--which may be the original, didn't have the clip either--but appeared to be much better quality.
i think after a lot of wiggling that i got it to seat. But is there a chance it could fall out, or will it hit the bottom of the pan before it as able come out of the housing.
