Bands are fairly easy; the OD and Intermediate bands can be worked undercar without loss of fluid.
- Back off the lock nut,
- Tighten the adjustment nut to 10 ft-lbs (yes - ONLY 10 ft-lb or 120 in-lb - exceeding this can bust parts, so avoid over-tightening)
- Once the adjuster is to torque, back off 2 full turns (lots of folks go 1.5 turns back - fine; no cause for a flame-war).
- Holding the adjuster in position, re-tighten the lock-nut to 35-45 ft-lbs to hold things tight
Do this ALL on a cold tranny, ensure that wheels are chocked and e-brake is set (all that safety stuff) you'll need to pull the shift-linkage off of the tranny to access one of the adjustments -- Kinda scary if you pull your tranny outta park and that's the only thing keeping your ride stopped (duh!)
The adjusters are on the driver's side of the tranny -- looking up from the bottom - one adjustment is just about directly above where the pan's second bolt (from the front) is ... and the other adjustment is kinda behind the linkage (cable-side)...
There are some good shots and descriptions on the Explorer Forum (http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/...d.php?t=158160
) but for some reason they're off-line this morning...
A nice foto from PhotoBucket - Tranny is on the bench and inverted, but Dr.'Blue-Glove' here is honkin' on one adjuster, and you can see the other adjuster very clearly ...
And a more real-world view (undercar) --
The linked ExplorerForum discussion is well worth the read and will list tools as well... (hope they're online by the time you need em)
