T45 Diagram?

Discussion in 'SN95 4.6L Mustang Tech' started by 1999SVTVert, Jan 24, 2006.

  1. Fun at the repair shop today with my 99 Cobra- I got in a pinch this morning and had to have a shop put in a clutch assembly for me- Something I would rather do and have done myself, but long story.

    Anyway, the shop gets it all wrapped up, and some idiot goes to top off the transmission fluid- Anyway I guess he thought he had the top filler plug, but instead he removed another allen headed bolt sticking out of the side of the transmission. Problem is that it was NOT the filler plug, and was a bolt about three inches long with a slot around it at the end that looks like it is for a C-clip or something of the sort.

    The manager that I had been dealing with was already gone when I came by and expected to pick it up- I want to be informed as I can be when I start dealing with him in the morning- I'm trying to find out what that bolt goes does and what steps I need to demand that they take to ensure that the transmission is not screwed up.

    Does anyone have a parts diagram for a T45 so I can figure out what removing that bolt may have done? Or maybe know what exactly that bolt does?

    Thanks in advance-


    I also posted this over in SVT, but figured may have more luck here-
  2. I beleive it attaches to the 5-R shift lever inside the transmission that controls the shift into 5th gear and reverse.

    I am not 100% on this on the t-45, but that's what it does on the t-5 which is a similar design.

    If i am correct, it will require disassembling the transmission to properly realign and attach it. DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR!!

    I would wait for someone to confirm this but i am 90% sure.
  3. There is a real good diagram you can find on drivetrain.com. Just type in T-45 on the part locator on their website and it will take you to a link you can check out.

    If that doesn't help, I have a PDF file that tells you everything about how to take the trans apart and what goes where. I can e-mail it to you if you want, I'm actually about to tear mine apart this weekend and rebuild it.

    There are a couple of torx screws you can see that are fairly long. Just to let you know, they are all pretty important so definetly don't drive your car. As far as I can tell just by looking at them, they are guides for your shift linkage. I don't know how familiar you are with the t-45's, but their shift linkage is basically a long rod that goes from the base of your shifter to the shift forks inside the trans. On that rod there is something called a shift interlock that rotates and moves a couple of things called "Z-links" that move your shift forks. Anyhoo, one of those torx screws is a guide for that shift interlock, but that is on the top of the transmission not on the side. The one on the side is for the 5th/R lever anchor.

    I haven't taken mine out yet, so I can't tell you what happens when you take it out, but odds are you're gonna have to take it apart and line all that stuff back up if it moved or fell into the trans. The only reason I say that is you have to take the trans apart to get the shift linkage out.

    I hope this helps you out, and let me know if you want that PDF for the rebuild. Just PM me with your e-mail addy. Good luck dude.

  5. Thanks guys, that really helps. Now I can quiz them and see if they can figure out what they screwed up.
    They said that they were going to have to drop the trany again and get inside to reconnect whatever it was connected to, so now I can be sure that they get it connected correctly- It is definitely the 5-R pivot bolt.

  6. Double thread.
  7. There's also another diagram on hanlonmotorsports.com. Just FYI
  8. Right now...

    This just happened to me when I got lazy and took my car (97 GT) to valvoline for an oil change and trans flush... they pulled out the reverse bolt instead of the drain plug... then they tryed to put it back in bending it in the process.. they then drove the car out of the bay to see if it was ok and it wouldnt go into reverse. I happened to be in the waiting room and I herd the grinding/rattling noise so i ran out to stop them but the damage was done. its been 3 weeks since they took my car to "their" transmission shop and I havent gotten it back yet.

    My question is what exactly would get damaged if they pulled out the bolt and then drove with it?
    And is this damage something that would need a total overhaul or just the replacement of a few parts?

  9. They unbolted the5-R shift rail mechanism. What gets damaged pretty much depends on how parts fell around inside. You could get lucky and it simply requires someone who knows what they are doing to bolt it back in properly. Or stuff could be chewed to hell.

    But 3 weeks is a little rough for an unscheduled repair. I hope they are footing the bill for a rental car. If not, i would demand one otherwise i'd bring a lawyer into this situation. They damaged your vehicle and you should have the right to have it repaired at a place of your choosing
  10. ..

    Yeah thats what im dealing with today... the place they took my car to was supposed to have it back to me about 5 different times. each time there was a different excuse as to why it wasnt fixed. saturday it was "done" but when the valvoline guy went to pick it up the car wouldnt drive because the clutch wouldnt engage. The transmission guy somehow (no clue how) broke the positive terminal off my battery too. Valvoline ended up replacing the battery fortunately.
    today im having a meeting with the regional manager at valvoline... they will be taking it to the ford dealer for a total rebuild and probably a new clutch if that was in anyway damaged... lucky for my my wifes father is a lawyer.
    ive been getting along without a rental... the weather is finally getting nice here and i just want to drive my car.
  11. Well I finally got my car back after bringing in a lawyer.. My car is working fine now and I got the broken parts back.. the Fifth/reverse gear shift rail was bent to hell and the Fifth/reverse gear shifter fork was snapped in half.. just glad to get my ride back.
