You should make sure to replace both filters...there are pics in the tech files...

the top one uses either a square drive 1/2 extention OR a 24mm socket.....

the lower one is on the framerail on the inside of the drivers side and uses a 36mm socket....

I always fill the container up with tranny flud when changing the filters. It gives some lube back to your injectors. It also has K1 in it and helps keep it clean. Just my 2 cents

Nope really easy. Just make sure you get the oring on right for the cap as its beveled. You should have directions with the filter
