    My Transmission Fluid Check Tube where the dipstick goes in snapped.
    I have a 91 explorer 4x4. What is all entailed in replacing that. I am getting a free one so planning on fixing myself. How much stuff do i have to remove, if any?

    I know it is probably really really easy to do, just want to be sure!

    If I remember correctly there is one small bolt holding the tube in place to the transmission, then it is a press fit into the hole from there.

    i found it easiest to get to with the passenger wheel well off and the coil pack and coil pack bracket off.

    13mm bolt that holds the engine to the tranny. may be best to use a wrench from the wheel well and a board and a hammer to get it started. then you can use a ratchet from the top. after thats out itll pull right out.
    clean it and put a dot of blue locktite on the bolt afterwards
