    shogun - any trick to getting those guys to respond? Granted this was last year, but I left no fewer than 6 voicemail messages asking to buy a rebuilt VB and possibly a rebuilt trans and never heard a peep back from anyone. Just interested to know if anyone has even had luck getting a response from them.

    I did not buy anything there to far, maybe you send an email? Or try Eriksson Industries, division of Wentworth Engineering Inc.,146 B Elm Street, Old Saybrook, CT 06475, 800-388-4418, 860-395-0047 Fax , eriksson.indust@snet.net
    they are authorized ZF distributor and I have read good comments about their service.
    Usually they do not have all on their online shop, so better call.

    I did send them a couple of emails as well. Was just surprised as I was trying to give them my money.

    I have heard good things about Eriksson, so will try them. Helping my buddy rebuild the VB from his e60 in a couple of weeks. Thank you sir!

    But as XAlt suggested, there is a gauze filter in one of the solenoids that sometimes gets clogged. I believe Shogun has a DIY on that somewhere.
    Need some guidance. I started to remove the valve body and it looks lime the loom is connected to the tran. I tried to remove the brown tabs from each of the solenoid but it they are so brittle that I'm worries I'll destroy them trying. Is there a trick to taking these buggers out? Am I correct in that the loom does not detach from the trans?

    To remove the connector there is a large nut on the outside, then remove the valve body complete with the wiring harness. All of the connector shells on the solenoids will be brittle so unless you are changing out the solenoids leave them connected. Its a good idea to replace the o-ring on the connector when you reinstall.

    Yup. Itís a thin black plastic nut, so easy to miss and a bear to get a good grip on it when the trans is in the car. Let us know how it goes.

    I'm stuck. I can't seem to be able to twist the collar of the loom out with my hands. Damn you all who make it look so easy. I can fit a plyers or any kind of wrench in there. Any suggestions???

    The nut os still on there. Are you not able to get that loose. I know itís tough to maneuver in there.

    The first time I loosened mine, I had to get a stubby screwdriver and try to catch one of those edges and give it small light little taps until it came loose. Then it came right off.

    Screwdriver did the trick! Thanks for that. Managed to get the vb off and cleaned the solenoids. It was pretty gunky in there.
    Waiting on a new filter and will report back once completed but the Shogun write up is pure gold. Definitely a DIY if you can follow directions and don't mind getting oily.

    was the plug oily inside? When the plug gets old and brittle, ATF comes thru the brittle plastic around the pins, when there is enough ATF inside there, it causes electric trouble. Instead of buying a complete new valve body harness, you can fix it

    This plug is not available as single item, I already tried to get one with some members here on the forum, but the search failed. Some older looms are even no longer available new like the one for my 8-pin 4HP24.
