trans filter replacement procedure?

have a 05, 4x4 with auto tranny,want to change the filter that is on the right front frame rail,it looks to have a large nut that you turn out to remove the filter housing,it looks a little crusty on the casing,is there a danger of the housing falling apart,or the nut snapping off?Havent tried it yet to see if it will move,i should be able to just change the filter in it right?.sorry for the stupid question,but don't want to get in over my head on something that I think should be a simple job.Tranny seems to shift fine,just want to try and remove some potential dirt?. Thanks Harvey

this should help:

pretty simple job. however I would not use air tools on the pan bolts aluminum sucks if stripped and for a few extra minutes with a hand ratchet I'll deal with it.

-2004 F350 CCLB 4x4: Sinister Race solutions kit, CAT ELC Edge CS, SCT SF3, PHP Ficm programmer, Procomp, Rough country, and Nitto goodies.
-2004 excursion, banks exhaust, 03 turbo, afe intake
-2006 f350 king ranch, 10 in fabtech, 40in tires, sct tunes,

currently-1999 F250 SBRB 4X4 First 7.3 and feels good to be back in a diesel....

Interested in learning something new?

This is what's needed:

I listen to BTS..never flush..drop the pan change the filters and add fluid every 30k. If you have a pre '08 replace the pan and stupid screen with a real filter and the '08 up pan.

Should cost less than $150
