What up bro! Well make sure if your going to do this job you know what your doing! If you let any dirt to go into the solenoid it can give you trouble for real! The car wont change gears and so on! Try to work really clean! I got 6 cans of break cleaner, I used 2 to clean the area around the Solenoid system to make sure no dirt was going to go inside the Trans before I removed the part! Im sorry I didnt took more pictures about this job but if you need help send me a email with your number and I call ya! You have to remove the battery, air box, the intercooler hose, the bracket that holds the battery, the plugs that goes into the solenoid and sensors, the 2 hoses that goes to the oil cooler and with that you will be good to access the 3 bolts that goes into the solenoid system that you can see in the picture I send you! If you do this right you can be done in just one day! Let me know what other info you need and I be more than happy to help ya!!!

Agree with Rocket, the key to doing this job is to make sure you clean the area very well before removing the solenoid. Once you have removed the solenoid make sure you have zero dirt that can potentially fall into one of the many hydraulic passages. The job is not that difficult and can be accomplished with standard shop tools and on non turbo models should not take longer than about an 2 hours.
