replace 1991 300TE 4 matic kickdown solenoid
 
My to do list is overflowing, no pun intended, and I am jumping from one thing to another. Have been chipping away at them and learning a lot. One step forward and two steps back at this point.

Can anyone tell how to change the Kickdown solenoid on the front of the trans? It seems to be leaking and I am hoping a new crush washer (thanks Kevin) will do the trick without having to mess with the three internal orings on the plunger. I have heard I will only lose a little ATF and so don't have to drain the trans. Thanks for any input and tips. RG

In our DIY sticky, you'll find two different links to the factory service manual. Steps on how to remove the kick down switch are there.

Now i am sure I am stupid:). Here is a screen shot (hope it worked) of what I am looking at and I still can't find it. There is nothing about Annoucements or DYI sticky. What now? Thanks Again. G
