I bought 3 input shaft bearings from him, just incase. I only paid 34.00 bucks a piece for them. Apparently in VT, these are easily found from Ford Dealers on the cheap. Wish I would have known sooner, a tranny rebuilt wouldn't have been required.

The links provided at the beginning of this thread no longer work. Any idea as to where this info is available?

Is there any specialist in Illinois that anyone knows and can recommend?

I heard from my Ford dealer and other online threads that they're under orders from Ford to not open up or fix them. Replace only.

thats what my ford parts guy in Kamloops BC Canada said too. Sad cuz there not that hard to take apart but fairly labour intensive

Maybe these files will someday be needed by somebody. Once I just put it together in one folder. Click the "down arrow" to download.

Thanks for restarting this topic. I've been reading everything I can but still have some questions. I'm guessing a lot of folks that posted a couple years ago have moved on.

I just got an '05 parts car AWD that came with a CVT so my goal is to see if I can make one good transmission out of 2 unknown units. I'll be posting pics of the teardown and hopefully the experts can chime in.

Hi, I'm looking for info about these tranny's as well. Friend has a freestyle, otherwise in good shape, but it's got the howl in N & D, it's the input bearing.
I'm a mechanic and help her out with vehicles since she's on her own. Anyway, fastest way to remove? I see people pulling it out the top, saying it's 20+ hrs? I'm just trying to line up a shop I can tie up for that long. Also, where's best source for the bearing/shaft?

Let me join this thread. My Son was given a 2005. It sat in a driveway not ran for 5 years. Dry rotted tires. New fuel pump. New throttle body. Got it running like a top. Then the dreaded wrench light came on, P0701, limp mode. Changed filters and fluid(yes I used OEM fluid and parts). When it’s cold, runs and “shifts” fine. After warmup, goes into limp mode and dies. Slips. I suspect the Mechatronic unit is failing; but I’m already 1600 into a “free” car. I’m going to try to find scan tools that will see TCM data before going back in. Otherwise, it’s now my weekend “project” car.
