Default Automatic transmission filter / O ring

I'm getting ready to change the automatic transmission fluid on my sister's 2005 2.4 L non turbo cruiser (74,000 mi) and wondering where I can get a replacement filter and O ring for the pan? I was looking over the procedure in my Haynes manual and it mentioned changing both. I've found a few replacement filters, but no O ring. Does that part really need to be changed? What are most people doing for a filter and is there any preferred filter for the ATF? Please keep your replies to filters and O rings. I know the kind of ATF has been discussed to death so we don't need to dredge that one up again. Thanks guys!

Done it twice. 2001 na and my 2004 diet. Used the "kit" from both Autozone and advance. Both came with RPL o ring and a rubber pan gasket. RTV would work as well on the pan gasket. Remember the torque on the pan bolts is way light like 15-20ftlbs. Far less than even spark plugs. Too tight and youll squish the gasket out and cause a leak

So, with another few hours of digging, I think I answered my own question. Wix makes a a transmission filter for the PT Cruiser (Wix part # 58934). You can buy it on Amazon for $11.95.
