Back off the adjuster enough so you can reinstert things. Should be a strut in there somewhere as well.

does the valve body have to come down to fix this? I also read somewhere that i have to remove something off the exterior of the trans body before dropping the valve body or it will not go back up?

If you have metal shavings time to start thinking about a rebuild. Shavings is a sure sign it will go out on you in the near future. Sorry man.

Cant help you on dropping the valve body, not experienced enough with transmissions to know, hopefully someone will have the answer.
