    • Thank you, I will be investing in some transmission fluid and filter next time I go shopping and set about changing it all.  Thanks again for all your help and information. Andy. 
    • It should be a light cherry colour and not black, also if it is contaminated it will smell of burnt toast. You will need a new filter and replacement fluid (Dextron II) and it is a case of removing the drainplug and then once emptied to remove the sump from the gearbox. In there you should see a filter, replace that and the sump gasket and then refill to the specified amount and run the engine, shifting through the gears and check it in gear with the handbrake full on with the engine running at tickover (always useful to have someone on the footbrake as well)
    • Hi....welcome to the forum It would be possible if you have all the components you need from the Elite and also would need to code it into the canbus to get it to operate through the vehicle electronics Do let us know if you tackle this and how you get on with it
    • lol....sounds like you picked the right time to tackle these jobs Andy. Does tend to get tight and awkward under the dash to tackle jobs like this but worth replacing the pollen filter or if extremely dirty then just removing for now to stop any spread of bacteria in the filter around the interior of the car. My Grandchildren are a bit too young to tackle jobs on cars yet....and I emphasise the word 'yet'. lol
    • Found it.......... Had to do some research on google, but I now know where it is. And ain't that in a peachy place. Glove box out, hand up into the deep dark depths at the back of the dashboard above the pollen filter,(which i didn't know i had). Just got to try and remove it now, hell that's tight in there. Now need a small hand, mmm which daughter do i pick?? Wish me luck,  Andy.
