  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Loosen band adjusting screw locknut Then back locknut off 3-5 turns. Be sure adjusting screw turns freely in case. Apply lubricant to screw threads if necessary.

Most likely you have the 42RE. The 46/47RE transmissions are a heavier duty design. If you PM me the last 8 of your VIN and approximate mileage, I can pull up your build codes and make sure.
