maybe press it up harder so the spring will push it down

nope i had that exact same problem. I'm guessing you cant get the cover and piston out right?? Well if thats the case then the top spring is broken. If you cant get it out by pushing i would either try a heavy duty magnet or if you like up on the side of the tranny there is a cylinder were the piston sits in and theres is a bolt that screws on its toward the top of the tranny. I just unscrewed that and took an ice picker or something thing and try to wedge the spring down. It may take a while but with some good movements it should come loose. When you get it out dont forget to put that bolt back in. I hope this helped because i thought i was f**ked when i was doing it

Try the snap ring pliers, open them up to grab the inside of the piston bottom and pull down.


It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!
