Remove output shaft from rear planetary gear assembly. Remove oil seal from output shaft. Remove rear planetary gear from rear planetary ring gear. Hold planetary gear and check operation of No. 2 one-way clutch. Clutch should turn freely counterclockwise and lock clockwise. See Fig. 46 and Fig. 47 . Remove No. 2 one-way clutch inner race from rear planetary gear.
Remove snap ring and No. 2 one-way clutch with retainers from planetary gear. Note direction of oneway clutch in planetary gear. Remove No. 1 and 2 thrust washers from planetary gear. Remove bearings and races from ring gear. Remove snap ring and ring gear flange from ring gear. See Fig. 48.
Clean all components with solvent. Dry with compressed air. Inspect all components for damage. Replace if
2001-05 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS A340E & A340F Overhaul necessary. Measure planetary pinion gear thrust clearance. Standard clearance should be .008-.024" (.20-.61 mm). Maximum clearance is .039" (1.00 mm). If clearance is not within specifications, replace planetary gear assembly.
1. To reassemble, reverse disassembly procedure. Coat all thrust bearings and races with petroleum jelly. When installing thrust bearings and races in ring gear, flat side of race must be placed against ring gear.
2. Ensure No. 1 and 2 thrust washer tabs align with cutout area of planetary gear. Install No. 2 one-way clutch with open ends facing upward. See Fig. 46 and Fig. 47 .
3. Rotate one-way clutch inner race counterclockwise during installation into rear planetary gear. Ensure No. 2 one-way clutch turns freely counterclockwise and locks clockwise. See Fig. 46 and Fig. 47 .
4. Install rear planetary gear on rear planetary ring gear. Install oil seal ring. DO NOT spread oil seal ring too much. After installing oil seal ring, ensure seal ring rotates smoothly. Install output shaft into rear planetary gear assembly. See Fig. 48.
