Because this is a FWD transaxle, we have the additional task of putting together a transfer geartrain and differential.
Both of these retainers go in at the same time, with the heavy differential carrier assembly in between them. (If I had an extra arm, I’d have pictures for you.) Alas...
Now we can slide the head off of the engine stand (careful, the transmission is heavy!), set it down, and unbolt the head of the stand from the bottom of the case. With the tranny separated from the stand, we now have access to re-install the valve body. But we have to put that valve body back together first... 41TE Assembly, Pt. VII
