    I would think I'd see something about it here, but you never know...

    Does the A4LD have any external band adjustments? The outside of the case looks like it does (on the driver side). If not, what are these nuts?

    Don't touch that dial!

    You loosen the nut and tighten the screw to 10 foot pounds. Then you back off 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 turns depending on what bands are installed. And you don't know cause they made so many changes to this transmission. They don't need to be adjusted because the servo piston has more than enough travel. They are tempting though!

    I'm relatively sure that its the same for the 5R55E and the A4LD. There are two bands , the front and intermediate that you can adjust from outside. I wouldn't mess with them though, cause you can cause yourself some real problems if you loosen the band too much and it comes off the adjustment screw. Then you will be dropping the trans and taking it apart to get the band back together.
