Driver's side, at the very rear. I loosened the "keeper" and popped the round plastic part of whatever this is out of the trans housing, but its still connected to something inside the trans.

What is this one and how does it come off?

This help you at all? possibly the transmission speed sensor?

SENSORS
Sensors include:
† throttle position sensor (TPS)
† transmission speed sensor
† vehicle speed sensor
† park/neutral position switch
† brake switch
The throttle position sensor is mounted on the
throttle body. It electronically determines throttle
position and relays this information to the transmission
control module to determine shift points and
converter clutch engagement.
The transmission speed sensor consists of a rotor
and magnet on the transmission output shaft and a
switch in the extension housing or adapter. The sensor
switch is activated each time the rotor and magnet
complete one revolution. Sensor signals are sent
to the transmission control module.
The park/neutral position switch is mounted on the
valve body manual shaft. The switch signals shift
linkage and manual valve position to the transmission
control module through an interconnecting harness.
The switch prevents engine starting in all gears
other than Park or Neutral.
The brake switch is in circuit with the torque converter
clutch solenoid. The switch disengages the
converter clutch whenever the brakes are applied.The switch is mounted on the brake pedal bracket
and signals the transmission control module when
the pedal is pressed or released.

Should be the solenoid harness adaptor. Once you remove the bracket that holds it on it should pull out of the trans.

When you unhook it, what remains? A socket for it to connect to, or a hole leading into the trans that fluid will come out of? I'm thinking that I'm pulling and bolt halves are coming out of the housing, because I can see more wire going inside the trans.

Forgot to say after you drop the pan and unhook them from the solenoids.
yeah was just looking at the FSM about that. and it never even mentions the solenoid in the electronics section for the tranny:stan3:

I figured out where the main connectors were by the motor and was able to leave the trans harness intact. I reeeeally didn't want to drop the pan. Its out now. I almost stripped one of the e-torx bolts. That would have really sucked.
