Can you get your hand on it or even see it?Have you tried pulling the radiator out enough in order to reach it?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
no, can't get my hands on it at all and pulling the radiator up stresses the trans cooling pipes....
Expert:  Mike S. replied 8 months ago.
Read the instructions. I don't see mentioning removing the bumper, or any of those parts you mentioned except the cooler lines.
Expert:  Mike S. replied 8 months ago.
Then remove them or disconnect them.
