Default 4T65-E p1870 Sonnax repair kits

Hi,

I have a 97 Bonneville with the all too common p1870 error code. I am experiencing classic symptoms associated with the code. Is there any manual you can recommend for servicing the 4t65? If not I am assuming to access the valve body I remove the wheel cover on the driver side front wheel well and then remove the transmission access panel. From the quick look around I just did it looks like I won't have to drop the tranny but it will be a tight spot to work in. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Rob

I am going to guess that you have a supercharged Bonneville?

The trans will have to be dropped out irregardless of model to gain access into that valve body.
