I read somewhere that our tranny is sealed and supposedly has lifetime tranny fluid in it. I know that doesn't make anyone comfortable but before you tackle such a task maybe more research will be needed. The sealing and what not may be different? Or just a general PITA.

tranny is sealed so no point in trying that (unless you don't have the automatic) The rest of the stuff is pretty easy as a DIY.

......?

Do you realize you're responding to a 3-post thread that's 4 years old?

I'm going to bet this person is well past their 30k service by now..
