I found a transmission filter from wix for turbo/non trubo but where is it located just curious anyone changed it? Part WL10379
You need to drop the ATF pan to replace the ATF filter / cartridge inside. Mazda uses RTV for the pan, and most DIYers do only drain-and-fill without replacing the cartridge due to the difficulty of removing the old RTV and possible leak issue of applying the new RTV. Wix cartridge kit comes with a gasket, but some including me may want to follow the procedure from Mazda Workshop Manual using the RTV to re-seal the pan. Keep in mind though no matter how you do it, you can only replace about a half of the entire ATF as the other half is in torque converter and valve body you simply can’t get those out. That’s why people are doing 3 times of the drain-and-fill, to replace about 87.5% of the ATF. Read the threads I posted previously. Everything you want to know is there.
