Short story: Im doing an engine swap on my 99 STS and I got the transaxle and engine bolted together and all the brackets on. Now im left with this piece:

I believe it goes over the shift cable on the transaxle, but for the life of me I can remember how it goes on. If someone could snap a pic of that general area, Id appreciate it.

That is a heat shield for the Vehicle Speed Sensor. I believe it goes on like this, the red going over the stud secured with a nut, and then the yellow secured with a bolt.

Thank you!!! BTW thats a clean transaxle you got there! I took a whole day to clean/de-grease everything before swapping engines, so its almost that clean.

Yeah, until it developed the infamous 3rd housing leak + a possible P0741 seal leak after 8,000 miles or so. I guess it's my fault for not replacing the seals before putting in. I only replaced the TCC solenoid. Trusted it too much for having only 34k.
