Tranny Filter Help

Hi Jeep people,
Picked up a Tranny filter for the Jeep and not sure if they gave me the right one. It's a 2004 4.0 4 speed Auto, the 42rle tranny.
The book says it looks like this with 3 screws holding it in


Attachment 769993

What I got is Square with what looks like two places in the sides for screws.


Attachment 770009



Attachment 770017

Also bummed that it's made in Mexico. Is this the right Filter ? Don't want to find out After I pull the Pan off. Thanks for your help.

My '04 parts manual says the p/n for an '04 42RLE transmission filter is 52852 913AB.

I haven't seen the filter for my present 42RLE but that drawing you have looks like the filter for the 32RH transmission that was used up through 2002. The below pic showing me replacing that filter is from my previous 32RH transmission which looks like the filter in your drawing. The filter for a 2002 and older 32RH has 3 mounting holes in it like that drawing shows.

If you're using a Chiltons or Haynes manual, you can't trust their illustrations or directions since they aren't accurate for all model year TJs.

And yeah, I have a Haynes manual. Can't find a real Mopar shop manual for my 04. Been looking around for the real deal.

It is? That p/n on the plastic bag in your photo is different than what I posted.

The part number on the Filter itself is exactly as you posted. The #on the bag must be a Dealers part or inventory #. Filter reads 52852913AB

Hey Jerry,
Does it happen to give any Torque specs for the filter screws in your manual for this filter ? Also, I'm using a Lubelocker gasket and it calls for 14.5 ft lbs for the pan bolts. That sounds high but it's what Lubelocker recommends.

Not much more than hand snug for sure.

That sounds about right. I'd use a 3/8" torque wrench there, it's more accurate at that low of a tightness than a 1/2" torque wrench is.
