Understood. This trans one does not service the filter, only fluid, The filter is inside the trans and is a lifetime filter. I know but it is by design, The only way to change the filter is to completely tear down the trans which is 12.7 hours to do the filter. Simple put? the trans filter is not to be changed only fluid at required intervals. Here is a link to a picture of the filter showing after trans case is split in 1/.2
