Pulling the front pump on 4.5 transmission
I'm getting ready to drop the transmission from my 280SEL 4.5 to replace front seal and the front pump seal (o-ring). Anyone done this? Is there anything that needs to come out of the tranny prior to pulling the front pump? Anything else to do while I'm there? Hoping to fix the flood of tranny fluid landing on my garage floor. Leaking about 8 oz. per week to 10 days.
