Anyone ever removed a transmission pan from an 01 to 04? For those that don't know, outside of the silly sealed, yet still superior transmissions, the models of the 05 to 07 are worlds more easier to remove than the previous models. In the 01 to 04 models, theres a bolt that was famously places directly under the mount bolts. Outside of that, and the issue and at hand is the dipstick is eternally molded to the transmission dipstick.


The help/advice that I'm looking for is removing the bottom sleeve of the dipstick (reference from photos). Would appreciate any tips or tricks for doing so. Thanks family
