This video is great. I have done 2 TCC replacements using his method. The only things I did different was that I did not loosen the pass side motor mount, tilting the engine really did not add any more room. The other thing I did when it was apart was to slightly 'trim' the bracket which runs from the drivers side motor mount to the trans case. I took about 3/16" from the thickness where the upper bolt runs thru. Then I shortened the bolt around 1/4". The greatly aided reassembly, and will aid disassembly if you ever have to take it off again.

Video is very helpful. We are working on changing the solenoid currently and having trouble with trans mount bolt and the upper motor mount bolt. Any suggestions on how to remove these? Or if the trans mount bolt does need to be removed? Thanks.
