Uh-oh doing JMod, may have lost filter/screen...

Do all 4R70W's have this little screen? I'm in the middle of doing the JMod, and I haven't found this little screen as shown in dirtydog's video. I may have to go through the fluid because maybe it dropped down somewhere...

Mine's a 96.

Well I found this thread, a guy with a 98 didn't have the screen either: http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=137594

Unless someone says otherwise I'll assume it's no big deal and continue on without the screen/filter.

I didn't have the screen.

Found the little white bobble/plug thing in the pan so I was the 1st to open it up.

Thanks. There are a few sources that talk about the screen so I was wondering. But if a few others' trannies didn't have the screen then I won't get too worried that I somehow lost mine

Mine's a 96.

96 has smaller Cone Shaped Screen that is probably still in Tranny Case.

I found the tiny cone filter and put it back. It was in the drain pan, luckily I read on another non-TCCoA site that mentioned that tiny thing or I for sure would have missed it. It's not actually in the valve body, it's in the transmission case but falls out when you drop the VB. I took a few pics in case anyone needs them...
