Stupid thing is the locking mechanism to hold it in place is IN the oil pan so you have to do it all.

The part is cheap- $10. Plus the pan gasket and oil.

Not required in a tranny oil change but if you have a leak it may be the culprit.
Whoa okay so ummm i hope its not leaking!!! if it is ill get the part and do it all over again but ill leave it for another week and check if its leaking cuz i cleaned up the entire tranny with brake cleaner and elminated all the oil so i can ezzzzlly tell if its leaking
