Front pump seal 700r4

With this repair, I was wondering if I can jack the front of the car up 2 feet and just drop the tranny one foot ( with a tranny jack )and replace the pump seal? If I take them bolts off will a ton of fluid and or parts fall out?

Or do I have to remove the entire tranny and stand it on end?

What is the easiest way to fix in my garage?

Thanks again

did you see my response to your other post about the same leak problem?

trying to do it as you describe will result in many problems.

Actually I was trying to ask a different question. Thanks for the help. I guess you already answer with this reply. I was thinking on just changing the gasket or seal on the front pump....( and not removing the pump )so you are saying there is going to be a little more involved even with just changing the seal.

My questioning this soo much is because I do not want to start something I can`t finish AND if it this is gonna be a pain in the *** for a hobby mechanic I`ll just toss in a new turbo 350 and have a stronger tranny.

If you are planning on just changing the pump to convertor seal, it can be changed standing in a bucket, without removing the pump. It is likely that there will still be a leak, as the bushing wears and may actually be the reason the seal is leaking. If you plan on replacing anything more than that, the pump will have to come out. Also keep in mind that there is a chance that the spring inside the seal may come out when it is being installed while the pump is in, if you don't have a tool made for installing that seal.
