Can anyone please put together a DIY for cleaning the shift solenoid, maybe with pictures?
I tried doing it this past weekend but I was only able to get the front most bolt even with the battery and intake pipe out of the way. I got a little information from this thread but it is insufficient: http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=644943
There is a rectangular black 'pipe' with wiring there that's an obstruction and I could not figure out how to go around it. With an extended ratchet I could access the rear most bolt but the one in the middle would be out of reach.
My car is a 99 TL so I don't know if it's the same for those who have successfully done this. I can post pics of what I'm talking about but if anyone can give info that would be great.

I know how hard it is to get to those bolts. I cleaned the shift and linear solenoids about a week ago. To get the shift solenoid out I used a 10mm socket on the front bolt and a 10mm wrench on the middle and the back bolt. I'm getting used to working in the tightness of the compartment. I found it easier to get to the back bolt by reaching behind the intake to the throttle body. I never had to take mine out but it does afford you some room. Not as easy as the atf change but definitely not impossible. I've found that a little patience goes along way. Is your tranny shifting erraticaly?
so after i cleaned my solenoid yesterday on my way to school today after work my check engine light came on. i pulled the codes and i got p0700 transmission control and a p1753 manufacturer controlled transmission
