How do you remove the A/C clutch on a 2005 Ford E350 , 5.4 engine

I did find the following article on the Internet:

1994 ford E350 E40D trans/7.3 diesel Shifts great and after 2 miles seems to shift back and forth between 2nd and 3rd gear. seems the lock up engages and dis engages. Any ideas? changed out the MTPS?...

the solenoids in the trans may be sticking,try adding 1 pint of dot 3 brake fluid to the transmission fluid and drive it for a while-give it a chance to work..the brake fluid acts like a cleaner and it makes worn seals and clutches swell a little.just drive it easy for about 20-30 miles,its only about $3.00 and it could save a $1,600.00 rebuild
