Transmission Inspection Cover
One of the steps of removing the oil pan from my 3.0L V6 Ranger is removing
the front transmission inspection cover. When I originally tried to replace
the pan myself, this is where I got stuck. Do you have to remove all the
bolts that bolt the transmission to the engine to remove the cover, or is
there something I am not seeing? When I was under there last time, removing
the bolts looked to be the only thing that would let the cover loose. This
transmission is a 5 speed manual, BTW.
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. Everything else in the
procedure looks pretty much straightforward, I just can't figure out this
one step. I know a mechanic is going to charge alot for labour and I would
much rather do it myself if possible.
