Hi all, first post, I hope this is the right section. So I'm not yet a W body owner, but an opportunity has arisen. A coworker offered her 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme to me for $500. Great shape, 127k miles, all the fancy options, new tires,  but there's a catch. Bad shift solenoids.

So my question is, is there a way to get to the 4t60e's side pan where the solenoids are without disconnecting everything and dropping the whole engine/transmission? Or if I drop the cradle a few inches to do this,  do I still have to disconnect EVERYTHING in the engine bay? I searched all over but cant seem to find anything specific to these cars. Some sites say its not happening with other vehicles, but I found a few pictures where the side pan cover was removed after removing nothing but the tire/axle/splash guard (I believe it was an 02 Monte Carlo but I cant be sure).

Im not afraid of a little extra work, but this would be done in said coworkers driveway before I drove it to my apartment, and I don't want to buy it if I'm going to leave her driveway looking like a junkyard for weeks. That, plus most of my experience is with F bodies so I want to know what I'm getting in to with a FWD. Thanks in advance!
