Default Temp Sender unit NEEDED

Alright, I was told this part is out in my Bonneville. I am wondering if this is a big deal getting the part out or if someone has done it before. It is on the upper right front of the tranny if you are facing it. It has a circular plug in. Anyone have this part?
Thanks.

are you saying that the tranny temp sensor needs to be replaced? If so that is actually behind the side pan of the trans...

Yes, the tranny temp sender unit. When you say behind do you mean it is near the rack and pinion steering? If so, how would you get to it?

Agreed... The CV axle will have to be removed, The side pan will have to be removed, and to so I think that the cradle will have to be lowered, or the tranny removed to do so...It can be a PITA.... A project for sure...

Well, I replaced the tranny myself, so I think this wouldnt be too difficult. Anyways, does anyone have this part or has anyone done this before?
