The procedure is similar for both Ford, Lincoln and Mercury car models:----

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the automatic transaxle, as outlined in the Drive Train Section.
  3. Remove the 6 bolts and the flexplate.
To install:

NOTE
Special bolts are used for installation. Do not use standard bolts.

    Step 1: Tighten to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm)

    NOTE
    One of the 8 flexplate holes are offset so the flexplate can only be installed in one position.
