trans filter maintenance

Hey, anybody know anything about the transmission filter on our 6.0's? The one on the passenger side frame rail just in front of the motor. I saw in the maintenance/tech files that it needs to be changed every 15k I think. I'm approaching that so I thought I'd take care of it this week. My question is... Is there anything special about changing it out? Just put a filter wrench on it and turn it off, replace with the new just like a plain old oil filter? Also does anyone know the ford part number and could I get a replacement at any auto parts store as well instead of a ford garage? Any help/insight would be appreciated. TIA.

Easy to do. Nothing special to know. I think its 22mm and you might want to use a breaking bar or impact if avalible. The bracket (my experiance) is kinda cheezy and feels like its gonna bend. The OEM part number is ft144 on the filter; and make sure that you use Merson SP (MUST). The filter does look like toilet paper and does come with a new o ring or atleast mine did, but I also pay $4?.00 I think. If you have time to order it online here is a good site Fleet Oil and Truck Supply - Heavy Duty Truck Parts. and no you cannot go to ANY Advanced Auto (in GA) to pick one up. They claim they cannot even order one, but if you have O'Reilly's thy do stock them. Hope this helps.

Thx for the replies guys. Sounds easy enough. I thought it would be, just wanted to make sure there was no special trick to it before I started turning a wrench on it and then find out the hard way... I've got a NAPA here in my small town, I'll stop by there tomorrow and see if they have one. Thanks also for the tip on Mercron SP, wasn't sure what the spec was for that.
