Where is the K1 located in a 85 or 722.4?

I got my K1 kit to install to help out with the 2-3 flare. I have this picture I printed out from this thread and the transmission in the picture looks different than mine.

another K1 thread

Has anyone replaced the K1 on a 722.4 recently? Which cover do I pull to install it? Is it on the front on the transmssion? I will try and take some pictures and double check that mine is the 722.4 transmission. I got the pan pulled and want to make sure I am taking the right cover off before I precede.

Thanks.

Looks like I have the 722.4

The K1 behind the cover on the lower right while looking at the front of the transmission?

Found somemore pictures on other threads and got it changed. It was the lower right cover on the front with 4 screws.

Now will see how it helps out on shifting.

Well, did it help?
I'm contemplating this fix on my '82 240D. 1-2 and 3-4 shifts are firm, but 2-3, while not quite flaring, is very slow and mushy (what I'd call 'lazy')

Happy Motoring, Mark

It was totally worth it. It made a noticably difference in the 2-3 shifts which are smooth now. I am very happy with how the transmission shifts now after doing it.
