Hey Matt, I saw a thread here about you're able to replace a broken band without pulling the transmission. I'm wondering if that possible on an 03 Explorer 4.0 4x4 5r55s with a broken intermediate band. It snapped where the anchor pushes the lip of the band. That little lip is what is broken. I suspect from over torque. I bought this explorer very cheap from a friend who attempted to adjust the bands himself. Its in great shape and runs awesome. Just need to get this band repaired.

I guess Matt is no longer with justanswer. Hopefully you can answer my question. I'm an indy tech but I have yet to master the ways of transmission work. -__-

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

On this model it is not possible. There are few front wheel drives where you can pull the pump and replace the band in vehicle, but not on this model. The trans will need to be removed and disassembled down to the band.

If you are satisfied with your answer, please take a moment to rate my service as you see fit. Experts are not compensated without a positive rating. Providing a rating does not close the question, you can reply or ask additional questions without incurring further charges.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
