Tranny solenoid replacement

So looks like my solenoid for shifting in to 5th/6th is bad. Looks like a simple enough job to replace, but looking for any tips/tricks I should know before hand?

When I drop the valve body, is anything small and impossible to find gonna fall out causing me to swear like a mechanic?

Thanks.

There are 3 accumulator pistons and springs that may or may not come out and there is a check ball with a small spring that will definitely fall out.
Keep an eye on the orientation of those during removal.
Have some transmission assembly grease handy, it will help to hold the springs and check ball in place when reassembling.

Oh, and depending on the mileage and where you live, some transmission pan bolts may break off.
I recommend to heat them up if they feel very tight to undo.

125k miles and I live in Maine. I expect to have problems with a couple bolts, but plan to hit them with pb blaster a couple days before starting the job.

Thanks!

Don’t know what year or what trans you have, but I did not have to drop the valve body to get to S4 solenoid on my 2010 with an A760 trans
